Keron Beattie

I am a contemporary artist living and working in the UK.  I have a First Class BA (Hons) in Contemporary Art and Design (2016) and a MA Fine Art with Distinction (2018).

My overarching interest is in fragmentation, remaking and wholeness and the potential of materials to change or transform and within that my current work is concerned with the natural world under pressure including disconnection with nature and natural cycles.

I prefer to use found and recycled objects and these are generally worked by hand using traditional tools and techniques. The slower process of hand working encourages a way of seeing and then re-seeing the materials and allows new ideas and forms to emerge in a dialogue with the materials.  I am also interested in undertanding how traditional jewellery making materials, processes and forms can inform and influence my small sculptural works
