Coby Beck

Coby Beck lives and works in Vancouver, BC. He began exploring his Painting with Water project in the Fall of 2006 with the help of Einstein and Rhapsody (pictured) whose stubborn insistence on walking every single day along the downtown seawall led Coby to notice the intricate interplay of water and light that dances for itself every day, never the same twice.


The files captured by his digital camera are processed for enlargement and then printed with archival quality inks on fine art canvas. The abstract nature of Painting with Water lends itself very well to the stretched canvas, a medium usually reserved for painters, not photographers.
