Congratulations to Lee Bethel, a finalist in the Professional Artist and Emerging Artist categories of the Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize 2018. The winners are announced this Friday 15th June. Lee's finalist work seen above: Labyrinth, 2017, encaustic and seeds on hand cut paper on board, 50 x 50cm.
For Lee Bethel, elegant constraints are the foundation of her workings, manipulating the fold, the grid and the seed. In her hands, the paper fold reveals its capacity for resilience and malleability. It is both a tangible folding of paper and a metaphorical folding of time and memory. The works suggest states of being that are "open-ended ... non-exclusive and unlimited, exterior and infinite." The inside is nothing more than a fold of the outside where the interior becomes exterior.
