Beth Carter is thrilled to be exhibiting new sculpture and drawings in a solo exhibition at Axelle Fine Arts Galerie, Soho, New York.
Having relocated to Brooklyn to prepare for this show, Beth has produced new bronze sculptures that range from life-size figures down to small more intimately scaled pieces which will be shown alongside her new large-scale monochrome charcoal and colour pastel drawings. Serving as a perfect allegory for this powerful new body of work, the title of the exhibition “Dancing with Morpheus” refers to the Greek god of dreams and leader of the Oneiroi (winged spirits of dreams). In her new figures Carter intuitively manifests her fascination with themes of transformation, half-states, hybrids and duality with her characteristic sense of playfulness and foreboding.
Exhibition runs 2nd Nov-1st Dec 2013
