ABSTRACT OR LANDSCAPE
A “Naturalist” by choice, Moorhead explores the world of abstract, non-figurative and symbolic art and its relationship to nature. Centering on either abstract or landscape form, Moorhead’s work is strong in color and passion while retaining a sense of calmness and playfulness. Prior to laying paint to canvas, a series of watercolors are created to develop the structure, style and color of each painting. Utilizing various under-painting techniques, Moorhead’s work becomes emotional statements inviting the viewer to share some of the excitement and pleasure the artist experienced when creating the work.
While exploring the world of wildlife art and folk as a child in northern Minnesota, Moorhead learned knife pallet and brush techniques from Bunny Humphrey and the use of templates and quick watercolor wash from the legendary Les Kouba. Fascinated in her teens with various colors, fabrics and design elements, Interior Designer Ray Elliot taught Moorhead how design periods in history could repeat themselves in various forms. While studying under Eugene Larkin and Marian Bagley at the University of Minnesota, Moorhead met international artist and designer Henning Jensen. Jensen a graduate of the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in France was also a student of post-impressionist artists, Ernest, Picasso and Matisse. Jensen’s master classes taught Moorhead how to use form, line and color to evoke emotional responses from audiences in her paintings and the importance of human emotions and sensitivities as catalysts for the creation of great art and design. Moorhead’s work can be found in private collections throughout the United States. Beth R. Anderson-Moorhead invites you to share in her experiences and the work that reflects her relationship with the land, all things natural and our connection to our European roots.
