About

Using his inkjet printer as a paintbrush, Jeff Becker creates watercolor-like imagery without Photoshop or filters. Disruptive in nature, the Slurry Series works don't follow the traditional model of making precise reproductions of an original photograph. Only the essence remains after the printed work evolves over a period of months.

As technology replaces human functions, and as Becker 'paints' with his inkjet printer, though the original images are created with preciseness and control, the resultant works are freer. By letting nature/gravity carry the process, with the occasional helping hand of man, the environment, and the months of time it takes for evolution to occur, the natural evolution of this process culminates with the capture and animation of the image as it evolves, allowing him to present the progression of change.

This work has been shown in juried shows at the Housatonic Museum of Art, the Schelfhaudt Gallery at the University of Bridgeport, and in both the Art of the Northeast and Spectra shows at The Silvermine Guild.

The work was also represented at the Art Silicon Valley/San Francisco (Art SV/SF), Art Miamiʼs inaugural International Contemporary and Modern Art Fair on the West Coast, and at ODETTA, as part NYC’s Creative Tech Week.
