Beth Morris has recently graduated in Fine Art from Cardiff Metropolitan University. Her work focuses on memory, loss and reinventing realities. She explores shape, space and colour within the confines of books or the miniature.
Beth is interested in the history of objects and giving forgotten items a new life. Her work uses objects that have a trace of old life, second hand pieces that are typically small trinket or pill boxes. Beth collects these from charity shops, the streets and her own home. She works inside these pieces with embroidery thread, creating a new purpose whilst keeping them as unassuming as possible. Inside the boxes she creates ‘string sculptures’, claiming ownership over them, giving them a new significance and making the objects obsolete for their original purpose.
