About Beth Cavener

My work focuses on human psychology, stripped of context and rationalization, and articulated through animal forms. Entangled in their own internal and external struggles, the figures express frustration for the human tendency towards cruelty and lack of understanding. I rely on animal body language as a metaphor for these underlying patterns, transforming the animal subjects into human psychological portraits.

"I really like Beth's work. Each piece does a masterful job of conveying a multitude of feelings and impressions. What I like most is that I am drawn back to her pieces again and again because each time - I am struck by a new or different perception of the piece. In short, they keep talking to me. Beth does a great job of evoking an emotional response through the animals that she creates - perhaps another compelling aspect of her work is the use of animals themselves which speaks to us of innocence and purity - a white canvas on which she paints the human condition."
