As a result of his fascination with the limited society, Beekman zooms in ever further on the personal environment of the individual. We see intimate interiors that are highly recognizable, but above all, a closed space. For example, even an intimate living room turns out to be both a melancholy and an ice cold, impersonal portrait. But whether we are looking at a Berlin apartment building, anonymous shopping mall or study room; piece by piece Beekmans paintings hold a mirror for us. While we are contemplating a space in which the individual is emphatically absent, we see an actual portrait of the bleak state of the human condition in our current society.
