Bea McMillan

Art House 11
Address: 9e Bellfield Lane
Open: 2/3 and 9/10 September

Beatrice is studying Sculpture and Environmental Art at Glasgow School of Art. Her work focuses on the body, its objectification and separation, and tries to reconnect the person to the body.

Beatrice is an intuitive artist who uses materials which can find their own forms and states, to explore concepts such as food waste, scale and the female gaze.  Her work encourages interaction and she uses her artwork as a way of playing. Her piece ‘Look at Me’, is a series of mirrors which seeks to remove the shame and taboo around vulvas by making them colourful and in your face. In a world where women’s bodies are often objectified and separated from the human beings they belong to, she looks to reconnect the person to the body, and makes us think about how we were created. The themes of her works often question the established hierarchy, promoting inclusive representation.
