Meet Frame of Mind featured artist Becky Van Mersbergen during First Saturday Ormond Art Walk this April 3rd from 5 to 8 PM. The art galleries along Granada Blvd open their doors to the community during Ormond Art Walk hosting new artists, entertainment, and refreshments each month.
Rebecca “Becky” Van Mersbergen is a Mixed Media artist living in Central Florida. Her work can be described as a “controlled chaos”, often incorporating bright hues, bold details, and the fragility of the human self. The main forms of media she uses is Acrylic painting and Digital illustration. She often incorporates them on various materials such as the traditional canvas, hand painted rocks, and skateboard decks.
She is inspired by the world around her, and all the nature and individuals who inhabit this Universe. Although, her main subject matter involves womxn, with their complex bodies and minds in a whimsical setting. With her work she wants to draw attention to the sensitive feminine figure, but she also wants to illustrate the chaos that can come from within. Her emotions and her obscure train of thought drive her to create art that’s emphasized to show the “imperfections” with ourselves.
Although in person she may be calm, cool, and collected, her art can speak much louder and better than she could ever say with words. “My voice is quiet, but my thoughts are loud.” Is a quote that resonates within her so much… A picture is worth 1,000 words, right?
