Beth Carter Biography

Beth Carter is an artist based in Bristol, UK. She has studied sculptural mythology and methodology in Gambia, India, Kenya, Mexico, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, and Tanzania. Her practice often morphs the human figure and animal, creating totemic creatures and extraordinary compositions. Her work is held privately in collections across six continents and publicly in the permanent collections of the Musée d’Art Classique de Mougins in France and the Muskegon Art Museum in Michigan.

Carter states:

“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.”
