Beth Gadd



Using themes such as objectification, and the psychological, I explore what makes us human. Influenced by the writings of Julia Kristeva, I look into the darker side of our minds.​ My work deals with the self, and the effect that living in our current society has on us as individuals and social groups. I am fascinated by the physical aspect of this, and respond to issues such as size zero culture, and what is typically considered to be 'ugly'. I favour abject materials, including wax and latex, and often experiment with less traditional mediums. Understanding the sensitive nature of these themes, I often add humour to my work to help my audience engage on a visual and emotional level. The often performative creative process reflects in my work and adds elements of interaction.
