Object Literature

Beth Carter received her degree in Fine Art from Sunderland University in the United Kingdom. In 1995, she was awarded 1st prize in the “Northern Graduate Show ‘95” at The Royal College of Art, London. After a four month residency at the Cyprus school of Art, she traveled to Sri Lanka and India to study mythological sculpture. She later traveled to New Zealand, Mexico, Gambia, Kenya and Tanzania to further explore the precedents for this genre of sculpture. Her work is in private collections throughout Europe, USA, Canada, Asia and Australia, and is in the permanent collection at the Musée d’Art Classique de Mougins, France.

‘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
