"Themes of cultural and environmental interconnectivity are explored within a gorgeous collection of  paintings inspired by wildlife, travel, and natural patterns inside A Brush with Nature: Abstract Naturalism and the Painting of Life."

"...a rich and complex work that explores themes of cultural and environmental connectivity in which abstraction and figuration collide."

“...a record of 25 years of painting by the artist who has chosen New Orleans as his adopted home. Beard describes how he came to his distinctive style of painting, and New Yorker writer Paumgarten’s essay gives us a glimpse into Beard’s remarkable life as he traveled the world, fell in love with Africa, devoted himself to art and conservation, and made a personal and professional life in New Orleans.”
