Beaumont incorporates different landscapes: Iberia, the Ardennes, Friesland, either sun-drenched, cloudy and misty or cold, northern and dark and nocturnal. He focuses on specific details: trees, branches, ponds and puddles. When he draws and paints he unleashes the anecdotic and creates fresh, free images, which are sometimes expressly figurative in nature, at other times almost abstract. But there is always a clear search for light and a subtle balance. His works don’t claim to mean anything or to provide a message; they ask for silence and contemplation and dissolve into a form of transcendence and sublimation.
