Schuyler Beecroft is a native of Virginia Beach, VA currently residing in San Francisco, CA. His graphic skills in combination with the thought provoking mind of a conceptual painter fuse to provide his viewers with a contemporary approach to image making. As his work progresses, he steps back, appreciating the history behind post-modern art while reaching forward towards contemporary design.
"I respond to life, and life allows me to communicate and to document what I see, what I feel, and what I envision. Though I speak as if my work might be a realistic representation of life, realism is not in any way what one will see in my images. My imagery has become shape driven, and hard edged. The graphic nature of my work comes with the territory I choose to delve into. Surfing and skateboarding have been a part of my life since I was a kid, and those two activities have really driven my way of life. Being on a wave is an art form in itself. You stand on your feet, bottom turn, and prepare yourself and your board to approach the wave critically, with style. I try and approach the workbench the same way I express myself in the water, and with this approach comes a style filled with juxtapositions between the organic and a hard edge."
