30 October - 9 October

Darkness runs through Beth Carter’s work as she explores death, vulnerability and human frailty. The myth of the Minotaur in
its many guises and reincarnations has been an obsession with Carter for over twenty years and it was only when her
much-loved father died, six years ago, that she realised that her ‘life-sized minotaur sculptures were all about him’.
Beth’s father, a self-taught sculptor, was a hugely complex character, a product of a difficult upbringing and a lack of formal
education. He chose wide-ranging materials, from scrap metal to marble clay. He took Beth to see classical sculpture in the V & A cast galleries and he gifted her his passion for art. She is still working through her feelings of loss using her enduring sense of shock to explore father daughter relationships, capitalising on the emotional range in her work.
