Chula Beauregard Artist at the Broadmoor Galleries
“The Western experience is one of contradictions as we navigate between modern progress and pure wildness. Geographically rooted in the West, I intend to bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary. Using the classical approach, I apply the tools that have been tried and tested through the centuries; patterns of light and dark, color theories, and techniques to create illusions of space. However, I find the modern approach to lend the freedom I need to express the intuitive sense of place; color fields, expressive mark layering, and textures that unite the painted surface. I honor the infinite beauty of this land, while striving to lend a relevant voice in these modern times.”
