“If we regard the human brain as an evolved organ especially designed to analyse and respond appropriately to the opportunities and constraints that existed in ancestral environments, we begin to look at human interactions

with the natural world in a new way.”

Gordon Orians

Bekky creates wall-based installations, combining ceramic hand building techniques with plaster mould making, slip casting and wood working techniques, to form contemporary sculptures. She aims to push the boundaries of materiality to develop new approaches in her creative processes.

She explores the ‘Biophilia Effect' - our intrinsic and primeval connection with the natural world. The intention of her work is to reflect on the psychology of this human instinct with the wilderness, and in doing so she hopes to convey the spirit of nature into her artwork.

Within craft practice, her work aims to emphasise how sculptural contemporary crafts can, and should, be integrated more thoughtfully into private and public spaces.
