Beth Gibbeson’s current works on paper explore the enchanting rock formations among the cliffs of her local landscape, the Mornington Peninsula coast. The varied surfaces and textures of these large rocks are deep with their natural markings which continue to alter over time within their unique environment. Her works on paper are an abstract interpretation of her experience in documenting the visual and spiritual elements of this beautiful landscape. She explore’s the formations that are embedded into the surface of the rocks as well as their significant individual construction.
Beth approach’s her paintings with layering and overlapping these elements into shapes, forms, lines, colour, weaving them together but ultimately finding a connection with each part. Her creative process involves abstracting these discoveries so that each shape is distinctive and comes together as a whole.
Beth Gibbeson completed her Bachelor / Honours Degree in Fine Arts Painting at RMIT. She currently paints full time in her studio at home in the Mornington Peninsula where she frequently explores as a constant source of inspiration.
