Keron Beattie

I am a contemporary artist living and working in the UK.

My practice is predominantly concerned with materiality and process and the forms which can emerge from the conjunction of materials and processes. Making by hand in a reflective dialogue with the materials is a key aspect of my practice and this open and informal approach is key to me understanding and pushing the potential of both materials and process.

My practice is almost always small scale, abstract and a response to either the material or the location is which it is to be placed

My work draws on my reaction against digital means of production, over consumption and over complexity. Found or recycled objects or non traditional art materials are my starting point. I then work towards simplifying to a bare minimum.

I have a First Class Honours Degree in Contemporary Art and Design and I am currently studying for an MA in Fine Art.
