Calico Re-Launch 2019
A new collection of works by over a dozen artists, plus a Featured Artist every few months.
Join us on Friday, March 15th, 7-10pm for the Re-Launch Party plus opening reception for Featured Artist #1: Steph Becker
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. Interested in the beauty and integrity of simplicity, 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.
