Using biomorphic images, artist Betsy Stewart examines the microscopic, mutually dependent life systems found in pond water. By giving these images a presence, Betsy Stewart’s paintings speak to our fragile position in the cosmos, and encourage the viewer to consider the unseen minutiae that constantly hover beneath every surface of the planet.
Betsy Stewart has been honored to have her paintings purchased by some of the most prominent public and private art collectors today. A Washington, DC artist, her work was recently acquired by the Kreeger Museum and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. In addition, the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas commissioned twelve panels for their newly completed suites. Her artwork can be found hanging in major cities nationally and internationally including New York, San Francisco, Santa Fe, Miami, Toronto, London, Cairo, and Beirut. (bio)
