Gaye Elise Beda's Story

Gaye Elise Beda’s Artist Statement

Early training and formal studies were driven by a deep interest in the beauty of everyday human nobility. Ernest Kirchner and Hieronymus Bosch were heavy influences that shaped her personal style. In 1975 she moved to New York City, and opened her life to the challenges of the main Art stream. Her sharp strong color became intensely personal and complex. Continuing her love of life drawing and through active involvement with the Salmagundi Club and the Women in the Arts Foundation, her composition blossomed through direct contact with her contemporaries. Ms. Beda has been published in many books and magazines. See for more details. And her collectors are from all over the World.

Ms. Beda's drive lead her to trips throughout Italy, Israel, the Bahamas, Hungary, San Miquel de Allende, Mexico and Singapore where she discovers a very human condition. The most recent Singapore Series are representational yet broken up by clear, mature color in an almost impressionistic manner. She creates atmospheric unique compositions through the sense of color and theatrical lighting. This achieves new and intriguing effects with strong contrast.
