Caryl Beach is a Hertfordshire based artist working in photography, video, mixed media, and print making.

For many years I have documented my experiences in the landscape, evolving into a visual diary, a journal, which records and reflects my everyday journeys, noting the detail, often overlooked, in the hustle of our daily routine.

Observing and recording the everyday, the landscape changing constantly, my journeys through each day present new experiences for me to note and capture: moving images; macro images; moments in time. All inspiring me to reiterate through my work, using video, photography, painting and print.

I create two and three dimensional drawings using printmaking and stitch, seeking to create a narrative about time, history, presence and absence. Themes and references for my work have been varied with recurring themes including natural history, personal history and the environment.

I work at my studio in Bedfordshire and also use the printmaking facilities at Digswell Arts Trust ‘Forge’ studios in Digswell in Hertfordshire and am a member of the Printmakers Group there. I also run monthly workshops and Open Access sessions there.

The environment decays and transforms. There is a chaotic rawness and non-superficiality, as time and memory of place is absorbed.

Through abstract form and restrictive mark-making, using machine stitch, I fabricate three-dimensional drawings. I continually question and experiment with simple, everyday materials to capture an ethereal, poetic quality in the work, evoking memories and narratives for the viewer. The shape of the form and surface qualities are altered through rust, gravity, collapse and deterioration exploiting the organic, random pattern, of fractals and chaos, “the order that lies in uncertainty”.

Through the mediator of stitch, soluble film and non-traditional textile materials; the restrictions of the materials are tested through wrapping, layering, sewing, soaking, moulding and heating. The materials are selected for their ephemeral and transient qualities – often, re-using discarded packaging.
