Celebrated Oklahoma City abstract artist Beth Hammack has a storied career in art, jewelry, and interior design. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, where she spent many hours in the university’s art school. Hammack has also studied with private instructors from all over the world, as well as the Chicago Art Institute and the London City School of Arts. Her pieces often incorporate lightly textured painting with drawing, subtle hues, disguised symbols and barely legible writing, all combined in purposeful abstraction. Her painting technique involves building layers upon layers of paint and texture in poetic combinations reflecting the richness of her creative life and observations. In creating large scale statement paintings, Beth says of her practice, “I paint with freedom and abandon, creating colorful surprise mixes of unexplained relevance.”

Beth Hammack is represented by JRB Art at the Elms Gallery in Oklahoma City
