Caryl Beach


Caryl’s current focus is time lapse video  photography and printmaking. 

time: the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present and future regarded as a whole (Oxford Dictionary)

Her preoccupation with the concept of time has led her to re-examine her practice- viewing previous work from a different perspective. Now the horizon lines and series of moving images, tree lines and hedgerows, tides and waves, seem to mark time. This is a continuing investigation. Her work acknowledges an appreciation and acceptance of the transient nature of our world and its simple integrity, with a beauty that lies in imperfection and impermanence.

Caryl is a trustee, print group member and former fellow of Digswell Arts located at The Forge Digswell Hertfordshire.

Her studio is located at Unit 15B Dicker Mill Hertford SG137AE.
