From The Magazine: Beau Stanton's Machine Dreams
Beau Stanton began painting as a 10-year-old growing up in Orange County, California. There are many reasons why this is fascinating, even charming, but one of the things that always intrigued me about this fact is the Orange County element of the revelation. Looking at his art, whether it be paintings, murals, mosaics, or animations, I see an artist who should have been raised in the post-industrial heartland. Gears, ships and relics of the great American past are used with a classical decorum not generally associated with the heyday of California’s architectural vision.
