If a “landscape” is defined by it’s line, form, color and texture and “internal” can refer to what exists within the mind then one is sure to find these elements in abundance through Beverly Crilly’s work.
Informed by her life journey and all the rich material that can produce, the work mines and then distills that range of pastoral to mysterious wildness that is present in and around us.
Beverly Crilly’s toolbox consists of all sorts of quotidian items like bubble wrap, drywall tape, vintage pastry blender, wire pot scrubbers to name a few, and if you look carefully into her work you will find evidence of their play there.
Maybe lunar, maybe deepwater or arboreal, Beverly Crilly’s enigmatic and resonant terrains, could be metaphors for the mystery of the human psyche.
