Contemporary abstract visual art and mixed-media paintings by Wortley Village fine artist Franklin Beecham, from the old south of London, Ontario, Canada.
An exploration of colour shape and application, this web site showcases samples of contemporary abstract fine art paintings by visual artist, Franklin Beecham from Wortley Village, London, Ontario, Canada. All abstract art creations are painted with vibrant colours using artists’ quality acrylic paints and textures by brush and knife on canvas. They are inspired by life and culture experiences, that offer the viewer an interpretation of contemporary simplistic organic relationships. The colours used contrast with textures creating tension between movement and static planes. The contemporary fine art paintings in this gallery website are all painted in Wortley Village and have been exhibited in Unionville, Markham, Stouffville, and Toronto in Ontario, Canada.
Franklin Beecham, visual artist, from Wortley Village, in London, Canada says…
“Painting is a spiritual expression where the artist becomes the creator. It transmits cultural messages through interaction with the viewer evoking an emotional response.
My travels from Europe to Asia, North and most recently, South America, have taught me to appreciate a variety of art forms, infinite colours and the randomness of nature. I apply these experiences to my own abstract works with an array of many styles and techniques, implementing my own sense of colour and stroke.
A professional graphic designer since 1979, I returned to painting after a lengthy absence creating a growing catalogue of work at my home studio. Currently listed at several online art galleries with fine art paintings that are now in private collections across Canada. the USA and Asia.
I am pleased to say that several donations of selected paintings have helped raise funds benefiting such causes as the Breast Health Centre at the Markham-Stouffville Hospital, the Kidney Foundation of Canada, Habitat for Humanity Canada, the Markham Arts Council, Scarborough Basketball Association and the Varley Art Gallery Foundation.
