Beth Armstrong (born 1985) is a South African sculptor who lives and works in Johannesburg. She graduated in 2010 with a MFA with distinction from Rhodes University, who in 2007 bought her BFA exhibition, Hibernation, for their permanent collection. In 2009 she was heralded as one of Art South Africa’s ‘Bright Young Things’. Since graduating she has been involved in a number of group shows and projects. A highlight being one of 33 artists selected for Worldforall’s ‘Not All is Black and White: Wisdom from the African Zebra’ campaign, which ran concurrently to the 2010 FIFA World Cup. In 2011 she had 2 solo exhibitions as well as created sculptures for a major advertising campaign by investment management firm Prescient. In February 2013 she completed a residency at NIROX Foundation which stimulated and facilitated, through the securement of Patrons, the production of her first large-scale sculpture: surface weight. Exhibited in AFTER THE RAINBOW NATION | 2013 at NIROX Sculpture Park, surface weight has since been purchased by Standard Bank for their permanent collection and is installed in their new building in Rosebank, Johannesburg. She is currently working on a large sculptural commission for the Kern Kunst Westvoorne Foundation, to be installed in Oostvoorne - the Netherlands. Inspired by structures both internal/external, organic/architectural and fascinated with process and change, Armstrong’s work often seems to carry a tension between flowing natural forms and rigid geometric constructions.
