Last month, the Paris Review featured Liz Arnold’s interview with artist Betsy Eby. Eby’s solo show Besty Eby: Painting with Fire is currently on view at the Morris Museum in Augusta, Georgia. Her encaustic paintings portray sublime abstractions of the natural world.

Marquand Books published Betsy Eby in tandem with her current exhibition. Designed by Ryan Polich, the book presents a survey of Eby’s work from the last decade. Betsy Eby includes essays by Danielle Rice and David Houston, an interview with the artist, and more than seventy full-color illustrations.

To learn more about the exhibition Painting with Fire, visit the Morris Museum. To purchase a copy of the book, visit the artist’s website.
