Statement…Messages Series (Light Years)
Messages Series has arisen from an interest in and continual involvement
with sociocultural signs, symbols, and issues of communication.
Messages, of which I have created over 2,000, reflect my insights
into language, intuitively and intensively constructed, and meditative
(physiological and spiritual) in nature. The Messages (Light Years)
subset displays a visual eschatology and my symbolic observation
of a world in which universal language is realized, in accordance
with the Lordship of Jesus Christ (though not through traditional
Christian symbols). I have produced Messages in various sizes and
formats. These recent drawings on a small scale are meant to create
an intimacy, a focus on details as well as on the whole. I normally
work with commonplace materials, because they best mirror my interest
in the abject and in the fundamental process of art making.
outsiderart.info, writes, "Beamer's art fills a small world
between what you see and what you think." This is the most
accurate statement I can furnish about my work.
of my drawings are framed, although …Light Years is meant
to be displayed as one work, with individual pieces being placed
side by side, 2" apart. Being text-based, I often leave my
framed pieces free standing on a table or pedestal, and/or in a
plate holder, the way one would display a book, etc.
