Bruce Becker’s work has been requested, represented and purchased around the world. Corporate buyers, individual investors, galleries and designers seek his work. Of the many creative endeavors that fill his life, all seem to stem from his truest passion, Oil Painting. His paintings are a unique combination of representationalism and abstraction. Treating the subject matter in a method unlike any other painter, he brings iconic like status to everyday objects. The compositions are reduced to their essential elements and then set free, through the use of amplified color and light. This depiction of imagery, creates a crisp sense of reality that captures the viewer’s attention and evokes emotion.
