Mythos: Beth Carter, Lisa Ivory, Josef Ofer




‘Mythos’, is a three-person show investigating foreboding, personalised mythologies in oil, bronze, plaster and ink. Each of these artists engages with universal mythology in order to derive a unique, subjective and relentless vision.

Beth Carter’s plaster and bronze sculptures often combine man and animal, drawing on a rich and ancient history of hybrid mythologies.

Lisa Ivory’s crepuscular paintings are simultaneously sensual and abject. Often depicting beasts coupling with naked women in open landscape, we are presented with an alternative meditation on man and animal; civilization and nature.

Having been one of the youngest ever pupils to be admitted to the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris at the age of 17 years, Israeli born Josef Ofer has lived in a community of 80 people on the banks of the Amazonian Rio Negro for over two decades. Recalling Francisco Goya, Honoré Daumier and Victor Hugo, Ofer’s ink drawings of often solitary, skeletal figures convey an incomparable inner, existential angst
