Bethel's work draws on a love of paper, cutting, weaving and manipulating paper in a unique manner that utilizes shadow and reflection to create complex patterns and peripheral lightscapes.
In a previous residency at Hill End a particular aesthetic responding to the landscape during winter emerged; skeletal trees and frost covered ground. During her 2013 residency Bethel will develop lines of enquire via examining previous discoveries and pit her previous memories of Hill End against a visit with a marked seasonal and physical change.
