is a multi-disciplinary conceptual artist based in Chiltern, NE Victoria.

Incorporating drawing, installation, sculpture and painting, her work demands quiet contemplation and attention as moments are held captive by gestures both fragile and strong.

In the process of repetition, Beth uncovers forgotten memories which weave themselves around and into stories that exist in a truly ethereal space. Meditative and immersive, her work speaks of loss and hope from a distinctly female perspective.

How does the NE Victoria region come into your work?

Contemplation is a major part of my practice. The natural areas around my home and throughout the region offer opportunities for the space and place needed for contemplation and for imagination.

Can you tell me what you have ahead of you this year and a little bit about each project?

‘Studies for the Void’ at GIGs Gallery is my first solo show since closing the Elvery Gallery in late 2016.

Inspired by personal events, these visual notes are an attempt to capture a moment and make sense of oneself.

In August next year, I will show some large-scale work at Arts Space Wodonga. ‘Memory Warp, Memory Weft’ is a series of detailed graphite drawings alongside hand cut and hand sewn tissue paper installations. These works reflect the idea that in repetition and the monotonous process engaged, and the subtle shifts in pattern and gradation, past memories or thoughts come through.

Beth is also one of the team running the Chiltern Art Prize, alongside fellow artists Kirrily Anderson and Nat Ord. This year the ever-popular event is set to be the biggest yet. The exhibition will be held at Chiltern War Memorial Hall over the Queen's birthday long weekend in June. Open to all Australian artists, there will be a total prize pool of $3500.
