BETH CARTER is a visual artist based in Bristol, UK. Her sculpture and drawings often morph the human figure with animal creating mythological creatures and extraordinary fictional compositions. She is represented by galleries in the UK, Belgium and the USA and has work held in private collections across Europe, USA, Canada, South America, Asia and Australia and in the permanent collection at the Musee d'Art Classique de Mougins, France. The artist says of her sculptures... Working within the realms of a sculptural tradition where the symbolic use of animal imagery is a potent and continuous source, my work creates allegories by, amongst other things, integrating the human form with animal forms. The resulting imagery holds both a timeless significance and a contemporary relevance despite and because of our separation from the natural world. It is important for me that my sculpture and drawings are accessible on an individual level as well as implicating more archetypal themes common to human experience.
