Beth Cullen-Kerridge is a highly credible sculptor with a superior training in sculpture, working mainly with bronze, stone and marble. An alumni of John Moores University in Liverpool and then Royal College of Art, her work being shown consecutively in two major London public parks shortly thereafter. The artist then honed her craft working with and producing works for some of sculpture’s best known, including Edwardo Paolozzi, Elisabeth Frink and Alberto Giacometti, before becoming a studio assistant with Mike Bolus and then Sir Antony Caro. She has also impressively worked with Sir Norman Foster on the Millennium Bridge.
Beth creates works that offer a commentary on our frenetic Western lives, embedded with a seemingly light-hearted dose of humour often with more serious messages woven within. The suit, or a shirt and tie, have become a key emblem in her work as she explores what they signify - whether that be money, hard work, the banker or collective banks in the context of the larger economical framework. Beth has been engrossed in perfecting her techniques in marble carving, for which she works some of the best foundries in Italy. We recommend checking out her work in the flesh at Kerridge’s Bar & Grill, London.
