For the twenty something years I have known Lisa Beck, the migration of the circle or sphere from one realm of meaning into another has been at the heart of her investigation. Thru her use of simple formal devices including repetition, size, and spatial relationships, she creates an exchange between the visible and the invisible that saturates this elemental shape or form with resonance and duration. Though she is more intuitive than scientific, the air in her work establishes that reasoning is definitely inserted into her personal calculations. Consider her an investigative reporter fascinated by observations of how the philosophy and science of the experience of existence is embedded in the magnified moments in our day-to-day. She is on the scene yet in the background, working from the mind’s eye.
