Bethany Walker

Bethany Walker
Mixed Media Textiles
Bethany revisits everyday elements from the built environment through large scale textile mark making, appliqué, screen print and stitch.
She continues to explore this through knitted and embroidered threads and fibres which are combined with concrete and cement. These details interpret our often overlooked surroundings of which concrete and cement is a significant and fascinating part.
Bethany uses the combination of hard and soft materials to explore the reversal of the traditional viewpoints of inside/outside and to highlight concretes new ‘fashionable’ status which has seen its development from utility to luxury. 

Bethany uses both bought and found materials which reveal the contrast of new and worn, bright and dull, man-made and natural, all of which feature in our built environment.
