artist statement

 

Beth is a self-described STUFF artist, dealing with obsolete objects, building multi-layered narratives through things, blended with a swirling craft-ripple. Beth’s work considers nostalgia, almost a preoccupation, sitting on the fence of the analogue and digital worlds. She selects materials to produce works that might insist on memories in the immediate or have the potential to in the future. Beth is curious about the value systems ascribed to objects and materials, and the potential held within our stuff; considering craft/art, high-art/low-art she hopes to push and pull apart these dichotomies and make personal connections to create a more inclusive art space and experience.
