Beth Carter bronze sculpture

Beth Carter

On our recent trip to the big apple we stumbled upon the enchanting work of Beth Carter, which was being exhibited at the Bertrand Delacroix in the gallery-packed district of Chelsea.

Born in the UK and currently living in Bristol, Beth graduated from Sunderland University in 1995 and went on to be awarded 1st prize in the Northern Graduate Show ‘95 at The Royal College of Art.

Cast in bronze and other materials, her beautifully detailed sculptures combine mythological legends with the human form and range from life size to hand held.  The sculptures are set in unexpected poses and intimate human vulnerability, creating a delicate balance of intrigue and the strange that draws you in and captivates.

‘My work creates an allegorical world, often by integrating the human figure with animal form. I work within the realm of a sculptural tradition where the symbolic use of animal imagery has been a continuously potent source, I seek a new level of inquiry into these timeless themes, and in this sense my work is flavoured by a mythological and classical aesthetic.” -Beth Carter
