While Beauchamp’s subject matter is traditional, his experiments with form and color free him from the demands of recognizability. Beauchamp throws unusual shapes and color in his terrestrial mix, resulting in an eclectic and romantic view of our Northern Californian surroundings. These canvases pursue a progressive expression, in which the creations of his imagination are placed in a richly described world. Beauchamp creates compelling landscapes, complex with dark corners and pools of light. These paintings have vigor and imagination that transcend the traditional landscape genre.
