Beth Wittenberg has been creating artwork professionally for over 25 years and currently lives and works in rural New Hampshire. Her explorative style covers many mediums including spray paint, acrylic, paper sculpture, and fiber. 

Urban Landscape explores the themes of home, permanence, and belonging. Each of these works were created in 2021, pulling from the artists’ experiences of 2020. Using her innate sense of composition, Wittenberg layers spray paint on canvas, both free form and using her vast collection of handcrafted stencils. The resulting works feel both fresh and deep, the vibrant colors pull the viewer in to explore these large scale works.
