Beata Piekarska Daly
I am an environmental artist interested in working with galleries, arts centres and local communities. My works are based on collaboration and engagement with different audiences through visual and practical research based mostly on environmental and cultural heritage.
Whilst regarding painting as my primary medium my works are polymorphic and consist of bio-land art, 3D painting installations (installations that are celebrating nature and our co-dependencies), photography and social participatory practice. From the beginning of my cultural studies, my primary concerns were ecological, environmental and education issues. I explore landscape in a physical sense but also as a manifestation of our evolving human condition. The goal is to create a positive framework that is optimistic and essential for everyone to find the motivation to implement the necessary changes towards a more sustainable world.
Through my artistic and educational practice, a methodology has developed based on exchange and reciprocity.
