Beth Walker: DEVENIR

26 July28 July

Brighton based artist and filmmaker Beth Walker presents DEVENIR, a joyful exploration of growth, life, rhythm and renewal through moving image.

Playfully blending the digital and the hand crafted, DEVENIR stems from Beth’s process of creating symmetrical paper collages, which grow spontaneously from the centre to form intricate abstract designs.

Beth began to document these collages at each stage of creation, resulting in intriguing animated loops. In DEVENIR, these loops dance together in a myriad of compositions, creating a rich visual journey of colour, symmetry and movement.

Having spent the past two years living and working on film projects in various countries in Asia and Africa, Beth’s work draws inspiration from the art and stories discovered along the way. In DEVENIR, particular influence comes from Indian miniature paintings and the ‘Baramasa’ or ‘Songs of the seasons’ tradition, with the titles referencing the Baramasa poetry of Keshavdas. More information can be found about this in Anjan Chakravery’s book ‘Indian Miniture Painting’ which will be available to view in the gallery. 

The exhibition features the final film project, various experimental animations, the original artwork, and an immersive projection installation. Join Beth on Saturday 27th July, 4–6pm for a glass of wine and a special screening of the film.
