Beth Stewart draws birds. She is fascinated by their tenacity, colour and antics. Her media is primarily coloured pencil which she enjoys for its controllability and versatility. Beth’s birds observe, rather than be observed. They gaze back, challenging the viewer’s autonomy with the awareness that they too are being watched. In addition to her avian models, Beth’s subject matter includes other small critters as well as objects that she collects. Her collection is composed of both natural and man-made objects. Key concepts that drive Beth’s artistic vision are: experiencing a sense of wonder in all kinds of things; discovering new and extreme examples of natural and manufactured items; experimenting with arranging, and classifying things; and making connections between seemingly unlike items.
