Gaucho Blue Gallery is owned and managed by Nick Beason and Lise Poulsen, both active artists in their own right.
Nick was first attracted to print making while hanging out at the Zeller 9 Gallery on the Fulham Road in Chelsea. After sessions at Winchester Art College studying etching, he was truly hooked.
In the US at the Pacific Arts League of Palo Alto, Nick studied with Adele Seltzer (who had worked with Nathaniel Oliviera), and switched allegiance from etching to monotype printmaking.
In Taos, Nick met Michael Vigil, an inspiring and generous artist and printmaker, and Nick continues to print at Michael's studio, Graphic Impressions.
Recently, Nick has returned to etching and serigraphs, with thought-provoking work ranging from contemporary takes on Japanese samurai themes, to homages to icons of art and music. He is also renewing his interest in sculptural art - in a variety of media.
I have been working in fiber for nearly 30 years, and over that time have explored many aspects of it - but barely touched the surface of all that is possible!
Papermaking, knitting, and most recently felting have captured my passion for manipulating the medium, and my work ranges from sculptural to 2-D to wearables..
Gaucho Blue Fine Art also represents some of the very best contemporary artists who live and work along the 'High Road To Taos' Scenic Route:
Gerd Bianga, Clodie Francois, Blair Brown, Jada Griffin, Joel Lage, Hanne Huisjes, Jim Stoner, Jean Nichols, Jean Whettnall, LeRoy Fresquez Jr, and more (on a rotating basis).
