Becky Beasley

Born 1975, Becky Beasley lives and works in St. Leonards on Sea, East Sussex.

Beasley works in sculpture, installation and photography to express the ambiguities and essential opacity of human experience. Key to her working process is the technique of burrowing: Beasley has a digressive and exploratory practice, focusing on everyday moments of intensity and private revelation.
