The mixed-media paintings of Betsy Walton carry surreal, vibrant scenes, with characters that meld into each other and their natural backdrops. A current body of work, titled “Psychic Landscapes,” gathers new views into her dreamlike worlds.
“Betsy Walton offers images of mystic figures in lush gardens – inspired by a mashup of the iconographic religious painting of the Renaissance with contemporary color palettes and abstract painterly elements,” Powell Books says, where the artist has a show this month. “Walton’s work has been shown in galleries nationally and internationally and published in a variety of books and magazines.”
