Layered Paintings By Betsy Walton Build Memory Into Colorful Explorations Of The Pacific Northwest

Kate Sierzputowski, Colossal, January 17, 2019

Artist Betsy Walton loosely imitates the landscape of Portland, Oregon in paintings infused with geodesic rocks and female subjects dressed as spellbinding goddesses. Walton works in layers, leaving some areas of the paintings bare with minimal sketches, while others have been painted, mixed with new media, or patched over multiple times.
