Art Fx is a year-long series on Huntsville Doppler featuring Huntsville-area visual artists.
“Sinking Into Saturday” by Beverley Hawksley measures 40” x 40” and was created in acrylic, graphite, and gesso.
“This piece is from a new series I am working on called ‘Undercover’,” she writes. “It is the result of plenty of time and consideration devoted to the wearing of masks and our current experience of solitude and isolation. My intention is to reflect on the silent communication, and the discoveries we make while examining our own interiors… with a lean toward a comforting perspective.”
Artist bio: Beverley Hawksley is a self-taught, multidisciplinary artist. Primarily a painter of bold visceral images, she also creates sculpture, textile, installation and performance works. Her subject matter considers our most basic, wild selves, the forces that shape us and the ongoing tension between what we know in our cells and what we wear on our skin. For over twenty years Beverley has been exhibiting in solo and group shows. Knowing the value of “making”, and how the creative process contributes to every aspect of human health, Beverley facilitates art sessions with children and adults in groups and private sessions.
