Beth Dary, New Work

by Ryan Salinetti

Using a range of mediums, Beth Dary’s work is consistent in its sensitivity towards environments in transition.  Her focus on flux in natural spaces is mirrored in her choice of forms and materials, such as kinetic sculptures made of fabric, steel and glass pins to translucent drawings on handmade paper with egg tempera and beeswax.  Throughout her work, there is an emphasis on transformation and evolution, capturing a moment in time poised in a delicate balance between sustainability and decline.  Dary explores the liminal space between nature untouched by human intervention and the "new nature" we ourselves have created.
