Winston Wächter Fine Art is pleased to announce our tenth solo exhibition with abstract painter Betsy Eby. In Milk and Honey, Eby creates “material conveyances of poetry” through expressive layers of wax and pigment that expand and trickle as transposed memories, landscapes, and music. Created in both her Maine and Georgia studios, this body of work alludes to subtle changes in the environment, as spurts of color teeter around wispy backgrounds like seeds rustling through midsummer fields. Eby searches for solace throughout her compositions, imbuing gauzy pastels with a lyrical optimism. Her brushstrokes pulse with hopefulness, as if quiet gestures of empathy to our natural surroundings.
“In the Metamorphosis, Ovid writes, “Let me sing to you how people turn into other things.”
To me, painting is a record of an artist’s transmutations. This cycle of painting embodies loss and hope from the tenuous wave ridden as I sublimate the emotional realm through paint.” — Betsy Eby
Betsy Eby has been exhibited widely across the United States and her works are held in the collections of the Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, WA, the Columbus Museum, Columbus, GA, the Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, GA, and several United States Embassies around the world. Eby splits her time between Georgia and Maine, where she holds studios with her husband and painter Bo Bartlett.
