BETH CARTER b. 1968 United Kingdom
Beth Carter’s award-winning drawings delve into the recesses of our subconscious, where the light is a bit dimmer and the division between reality and fantasy less perceptible. Curious figures emerge as if from dreams. Carter’s greyscale palette lends a ghostly ephemerality to her subjects—and yet they captivate with the enduring command of her burliest, bronze sculptures. Every stroke and smudge contributes emotional intensity that echoes of human experience. It is hard to look away.
