It's not Heavy Metal

August 19, 2016 15:58

When Chris Beck hauls his trailer to town, we know the gallery is going to be full of metal...old, rusty, crusty metal. Lots of it. When he unloads the trailer, all the goods are wrapped in packing blankets. And then, the surprise happens....his rusty metal is painted in beautiful, soft pastels. The transformation from old and rusty to soft and light happens under the rubber mallett that Chris swings countless times in his workshop. The application of many layers of paint give each piece a patina that looks both aged and loved. Like your favorite pair of jeans. Yes, we love it when Chris comes to town with his not so heavy metal!

The show is up August 20 - September 25.
