Steph Becker is a Brooklyn based artist working in painting and illustration. Influenced primarily by folk art, she utilizes a subdued color palate, simplified forms, and minimal detail. Becker is interested in the beauty and integrity of simplicity, and her work aims to communicate complex emotions clearly and purely.
In her current work she explores the struggle of fitting into society while cultivating and following a personal life purpose. Using animals as a metaphor for one’s natural instinct, she depicts pets, horses, and farm animals being confined, limited, or sometimes freed from the constricts of society. She captures quiet moments of doubt about the merits of safety and comfort verses a calling to explore, discover, and live according to one’s true nature.
