More about Keron Beattie
Keron gained a First Class BA (Hons) in Contemporary Art and Design (2016) and a MA Fine Art with Distinction (2018) from NUA. His work for A Fine Balance is concerned with the natural world under pressure including disconnection with nature and natural cycles.
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 currently exploring how traditional jewellery making materials, processes and forms can inform and influence his small sculptural works.
