Beth Horner (b. 1995, Hertfordshire) recently graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Painting in 2020, having received a BA in Painting from Wimbledon College of Art in 2017. She is currently a Digswell Arts Fellow and works from her studio in Letchworth Garden City. 

In her small-scale paintings, familiar suburban settings are transformed into sinister, uncanny dwellings blanketed in mystery and quiet possibility. Personal imagery is compiled, disassembled, and pieced back together in claustrophobic, eerie documentations of domestic life. Intricately rendered fragments lead into areas suggestive of decay. Plaster strips resemble scabs on the painting’s surface as if a result of intense scrutiny, warping and abstracting spaces once familiar.
