Bethany Williams’ practice explores historical themes, with a focus on cartography: the study and practice of making maps.
The relationship between the creation of maps and the history of people and place provides a contextual basis upon which the artist makes her work, informing production of mixed media pieces that utilise paper making, a skill dating back as far as 3,000 BC.
Local history plays an important part in William’s creative practice. Researching local history gives a larger sense of appreciation of where the artist comes from, as well as how important history is within the study and creation of art.
