Bethany Eden

Watercolor Artist

   

Bethany is a watercolor artist currently living and working in Santa Clara, California. You can see her work in person around the Bay Area at craft fairs and gallery exhibitions, as well as follow her daily progress on instagram or her website.

Her recent work focuses on the female figure and how it relates to the space in which it's placed using watercolor and acrylic paint. The figures are often found observing their surroundings, creating a call to contemplation and solitude. Stillness allows space to search for deeper truth without distraction.

"My goal with these works is to explore that quiet space where depth and meaning can be found."

“The shapes and colors in my current work draw inspiration from the familiar objects that I see day to day, everyday, while sheltering in place in my home during the pandemic. The shade of a purple bruise on my toddler’s knee, the ecru tone when the sunlight hits my dining room wall in the morning, the shape of a relaxed newborn fist when he’s finished nursing. Years from now, these collages will serve as an abstract journal to look back on this uncertain time in our shared history, a reminder that we had a warm and safe home in which to hide away.”

CLEANSE

A series of paintings created with watercolor, acrylic, and ink exploring the feeling of weightlessness when submerged in water.

Water acts as a metaphor for a powerful force surrounding the subject and lifting their burdens from them.
