Bev Goodwin is a multimedia artist, enjoying working with wire, low tech and recycled materials. She’s interested in recycling all manner of materials, and transforming them into unusual art forms.
Today, it’s hard sometimes to distinguish between the artificial and the natural, and this is what inspires her to create artworks where one thing is the other and vice versa; where there can be a question between the “artificial and the natural”.
As an artist, environmental issues and the effects of mass consumerism concern her.
By transforming and recycling used materials new art forms emerge and give life once again.
Recently she has worked with wire in all its myriad forms. It’s the ideal material to recycle. Inside the electrical cables are an amazing array of colour combinations. Some are thick, some thin, some are flecked, others are clear brilliant colours. These she separates and divides into colour ways to ready them to be wound and then turned into artworks. It’s a fascinating process albeit a slow one.
