About

Bethany Carlson's photo-realistic charcoal drawing on a round panel. The image is of a moon or a planet in space. More information below: While thinking about the nature of a moon, I created works that reflect the gentle tug our moon has on our planet. In addition, the pieces bring to mind the subtle tensions that exist between our body and that of another. In simplest terms, this was achieved through a moon with encroaching darkness and a wave, bending and pushing itself in all directions. I find the circle useful to contain both the idea and the composition into a constant mingled flow. The use of charcoal feels both photographic and painterly. As the works are fabrications based on reality, they reveal the presence of an energy that is looming and pulling us from within. Moons of Another A faithful witness, moons are observers of unimaginable sublimity and complexity. They guide and are guided. They are synchronized and interdependent. They are mystical, imperfect, effectual companions. These works employ imagery of a space that can scarcely be reached or examined. As such, they are defined more by absence than by presence. They are linked to a void that is often charged with mystery and wonder. Much like the thoughts and experiences of those no longer living, these spaces are deeply meaningful to ponder and impossible to fully comprehend. Bio Bethany Carlson is an artist and teacher living and working in Peoria, IL. She earned her BFA from Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville, IL and her MFA from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM. She teaches at Bradley University and Illinois Central College. Her work features drawings, paintings, and sculptures that are often delicate, pensive, and funeral in nature. *Make sure to use the "view in a room" feature on your computer to get an idea of what the piece would look like in an interior.
