For me inspiration comes from everywhere. From every aspect of being alive. And it’s not always good or positive inspiration. I’m inspired by grief, loss or failure just as much as I am by beauty, kindness and growth. It’s not unusual for me to find inspiration by looking long and hard at what I DON’T like. I’m inspired by all of it.”      -Duke Beardsley

HARNESSED IMPULSION: Sliding Stops and Flying Changes from the Lost Trail to Nowhere

As a sixth generation Coloradan, Duke Beardsley's western roots run deep and it is evident in his art. Splitting his time between Denver and his family's cattle ranch in eastern Colorado, he has been drawing and painting images of the American West most of his life. “It just never gets old; at least not for me. I love the iconography, I love the subject, I love the movement.  And there is endless possibility for new ideas and new dialogue in the western subject matter”, the artist says.

Beardsley's work blends modern artistic elements with the traditional icons of the West. “My interest,” he says, “is in pushing up the very romanticized traditional icon of the cowboy into a few essential shapes, forms, and flavors.” The result has made him a consistently popular favorite among collectors of contemporary western art.

Duke Beardsley was born in 1969 in Denver, Colorado. He studied at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.  Beardsley's work has been featured in notable exhibitions across the country such as the Coors Western Art Exhibit and Sale, the Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale, The Russell: The Sale to Benefit the C.M. Russell Museum, and the Colorado Governor's Invitational Art Show & Sale. His work can be found in noteworthy collections around the world, including the Forbes Collection, Denver Art Museum, Booth Museum of Western Art, and the State of Colorado.
