Lee Bethel works with paper, watercolour and wax encaustic to create richly patterned constructions which explore the energy and poetics of the grid. Her work examines optics, space and geometric abstraction through the manipulation of paper and colour, and the interplay of light and shadow. Objects are an important source of inspiration for Bethel's work, particularly the connections to memory and self that they trigger. Hill End will provide the artist with rich material from which to develop a new body of work for exhibition at Kerrie Lowe Gallery in 2010/11.
