Beth Cavener’s sculptures pry at those uncomfortable, awkward edges between animal and human. She digs at human psychology with subtly personified creatures in apparent states of fear, conflict, and submission.
Renowned scholar Garth Clark Interviews sculptor Beth Cavener in the space of her latest exhibit at Peters Projects in Santa Fe, New Mexico. They discuss her inspirations, techniques, and personal experiences that drive her contemporary ceramic art.
The group show Trophies and Prey was curated by Garth Clark and Mark Del Vecchio, founders of CFile, with a portion of proceeds from the exhibition going to support the CFile Foundation for Contemporary Ceramic Art. Garth and Beth have a long history, the former Garth Clark Gallery first showed her work a decade ago, in 2005. In the interview, Garth talks to Beth about her latest exhibition, discussing her inspirations, techniques, and personal experiences that drive her work.
“Beth is one of the most admired, most talked about, and most respected young sculptors that we have in our field,” explains Clark.
