"Preoccupied with aesthetic resolutions… and rejecting facile trends, Beach has grounded his art in various painting and print techniques, which he obviously masters.  His restless search… to visualize the links between perception, feeling, and thinking becomes a celebratory metaphor of the artist as an independent creative individual… these colorful works are joyful as well as lyrical reflections upon nature, people, locations and the dynamics established between them… Trans-cultural juxtapositions and reconciliation between past and present… reveal a realm of subtle inner forcefulness… [His work testifies], in a discreet and enchanting way, that art should be enjoyed and experienced to its fullest, by all of us."
