The Newcastle born Martha Beaumont graduated with an MA in Fine Art at City & Guilds in London a city where she continues to work today.
Awarded the Stephen Good Prize for Engraving, exhibiting as a photographer and creating theatrical art installations, Martha’s grasp of the many medias of fine art is outstanding and has a great impact on her works. Using these multi-disciplinary skills, the artist builds fictional ‘sets’ that she then photographs to capture to turn the theatre like scenes into two-dimensional art.
“My sets reference culturally familiar imagery from cinema and art history to suggest possible narratives. Through using ideas from films, I want to suggest both a sense of familiarity whilst suggesting that perhaps our subconscious has been heavily influenced by fictional cinematic worlds.”
