Artist Statement:
Beth Evans is a visual artist working from The Tannery Print Studio in Adelaide, South Australia. She creates artwork that takes its inspiration from her former career as a health professional. Beth’s work includes artist’s books, printmaking and small-scale bronze sculptures. Much of her work is emblematic of her ongoing fascination with the human form and its functionality as well as healing rituals and customs throughout history. Other books come from her personal history and present an often-outlandish story intended to both amuse the viewer and take them back to their childhood.
