Humans depend upon the concept of cause and effect to simplify an incredibly complex universe, predict the future and to build meaning in the face of nature’s “chaotic” ambivalence. With his newest work, Nathan Beard seeks a deeper understanding of how this system molds our experiences into a generally seamless chronology and aids in the creation, or adoption, of world views. The serpentine gesture is meant to evoke the march of time and infinity, and is a visual metaphor for the energies at work forming and reforming all we see and experience. 
 
Beard was awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Colorado State University in 2001. The artist maintains a studio in St. Petersburg, FL where he lives with his wife and daughter.
