Jeffrey Becom: Painted Villages of Ecuador
Catherine Couturier Gallery is thrilled to announce Painted Villages of Ecuador, an exhibition of new work by artist Jeffrey Becom opening Saturday, June 29th, from 4pm-6pm. Jeffrey Becom approaches his art as a photographer and painter with formal training as an architect. For him, these three pursuits ignite one fascination: painted walls. The tradition of painted facades in vernacular architecture around the world provides this traveler with both subject matter and inspiration for his own artwork. Paint and color serve as Becom’s life calling, whether it be through photography, painting, or writing books about painted color customs, myths, and meanings.
For about thirty years, Becom has dedicated his life to documenting the rich heritage of pre-colonial indigenous cultures across Latin America. He has recently focused on photographing in the rural Andean villages of South America and how ancient traditions have continued to survive through these native people’s traditions, beliefs, and architecture. This exhibition is meant to honor the endurance of Ecuador’s indigenous communities and their cultural heritage. Therefore, Becom finds it critical to capture the colors, subjects, and details exactly as found.
Don't miss the chance to meet the artist in person at the opening reception on June 29th, 2024, from 4pm-6pm!
