Mark Beck

Albuquerque, New Mexico

My paintings represent an interest I have in the traditional image of the United States - particularily the notion of the ‘American Dream’ and how we go about finding it or losing it. … I try to make beautiful paintings which convey in a subtle way certain glorifications or realities of our life in America.I am particularly interested in the simple forms of older American buildings and the universal symbol of a home. In painting, a home is a point of departure for me. It is a vehicle to express serenity, belonging and rootedness.
