While Basil Beattie is best known for his abstract paintings featuring architectural motifs, often including stairs, ladders and tunnels, his works on paper have formed an important part of his practice throughout his illustrious career. Psychological and physical complexity abound in the deceptively simple visual language used by Beattie to explore certain preoccupations, such as the passing of time and notions of the journey.
In Beyond Yonder, which is similar in form to the works in Beattie’s Janus series, a variety of moods are created by his use of different colours in each segment of the image. As Beattie himself explains, ‘Here, I explore the idea of what is beyond the tunnel, incorporating angles to add the suggestion of a perspectival horizon.’ Beattie’s use of oil-based inks give a luscious surface quality to this screenprint.
