Beaucage’s Skipper paintings invites you to follow a young swashbucklers couple in a topside adventure. Petula is a sailor, she sold all her belongings and now navigates the big salty. Her sea legs took her to the South Pacific. A femme of high spirits, she enjoys great conversations with aged tequila in her sailboat boudoir. She loves to be top free on the island, surrounding herself with quiet plants. She spends most of her time talking with her lover and shipmate; a philosopher from Denmark called Gudbjorn, she calls him Gud for short. Gud loves cutting wood. Making wood ornaments and thinking about how the worlds populations is exponentially growing. What will happen to the food production in Micronesia he wonders; Gud wonders a lot and then he writes books with solutions about it; from his own experience on the ground. Every afternoon Petula swims. Gud takes pictures of Petula day and night. They plumb the depths together.

In parallel to S/Z’s Roland Barthes search for openness of interpretation in literature; Beaucage organized her current exhibition to allow for a looseleaf narrative. Barthes had concluded that an ideal text is one that is reversible, or open to the greatest variety of independent interpretations and not restrictive in meaning; avoiding strict timelines and exact definitions of events. Beaucage brings about this reversibility in the exhibition by choosing a series of paintings that mixes the plot in a non linear fashion, including molly induced moments and cinematic tropes in 3D.

All the images visually rhyme with one another around a central bivouac; a campsite in the woods where the Rave is happening. The rhymes are geometric elements that are both color and sound.

The viewer will discover the paintings by looking through sculptures and painting installation. Twelves feet multicolor trees, an octagon geometric shape and freestanding painted campers are installed on the gallery floor to produce a deep focus space. The inclusion of the three levels of foreground, middle ground and extreme background objects (a large painting 9 x12 feet) will create for the viewer a similar effect to a depth of field composition in cinematography; allowing the viewer to focus both close and distant planes.

Beaucage created enamel on Iron pieces that where fired at 1450° F; fusing glass to metal. Influenced by Limoges enamelings from the mid 1600s, her ravers are incapsulated in a deep glossy tranced out spaces.
