More about Keron Beattie
Keron gained a First Class BA (Hons) in Contemporary Art and Design (2016) and MA Fine Art with Distinction (2018) from NUA. His work is concerned with fragmentation, remaking and wholeness and the potential of materials to change or transform. Keron prefers to use found and recycled objects, generally working by hand using traditional tools and techniques. This slower process encourages a way of seeing and then re-seeing the materials and allows new ideas and forms to emerge. He is also interested in the passing of time recorded in the objects themselves, and through his interventions. Working to a domestic scale encourages Keron's work to be looked at carefully and to find a place in the home as well as the gallery.
Keron has shown his work across the eastern region as well as nationally in Somerset, Sussex and London and internationally including Italy and Spain.
