Beth Shipley’s work engages the language of reductive abstraction and the mediums of painting and drawing to locate concrete form for the not-fully-recognized, but palpably felt, aspects of the everyday experience. To this end, the pictorial space is conceived as an open-ended platform to activate the logic of material production in combination with the mechanics of perception and the influence of context. Within this framework, close attention is given to the slippage between the identification of form and the form itself. At these transactional points—en route from absence to presence, image to object and other instances of the in flux and indeterminate— opportunities arise to interact with form while still in a state of becoming and open to the possibility of newfound insight. Beth received an MFA in Painting and Art Criticism from Pratt Institute and a BS in Studio Art from Skidmore College. Her work has been exhibited widely, including shows at the Park Place Gallery, Soho20, Islip Art Museum, Central Features, Painting Center, Sheila Riggs and Leidy Galleries, Andrea Meislin Gallery, Geoffrey Young Gallery and Solar Grandjean de Montigny in Brazil. She has received support grants from the City University of New York, Marymount Manhattan College and Change, Inc. and residency fellowships from the Nave Project, Ecuador; Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts and Sciences, GA; Jentel Foundation, WY; Helen Wurlitzer Foundation, NM; Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, VA; Alfred and Trafford Klots Foundation (MICA), France, the Fundacion Valparaiso, Spain and the Vermont Studio Center, among others. She is based in New York City, where she teaches as an associate professor at Marymount Manhattan College.
