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 .

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 understanding how traditional jewellery making materials, processes and forms can inform and influence my small sculptural works
