Donald Beal digs deep into the medium of paint searching for form and color. He wipes, scrapes and repaints his way to the dogs, trees, brooks, figures and flowers that populate his paintings. As the art historian Anna Dempsey writes, “Though the artist depicts the power of nature, his work does not simply document it. Rather, Beal’s landscapes illuminate a conversation between humanity and the natural world...” Beal studied at the Swain School of Design, and the Parsons School of Design with masters Paul Resika and Leland Bell. Beal is a Professor of Fine Arts at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, a 2013 Lillian Orlowsky William Freed Fellow at PAAM, and is represented by the Berta Walker Gallery.
