Beth Carney is a New York fiber artist whose background as a dancer brings a special quality to her art quilts. She works in an improvisational manner, exploring line, shape, color and motion to create compositions that dance. Working in abstract forms and self-dyed fabrics allow her to explore themes that convey a sense of place-buildings and urban settings as well as nature. Beth’s love of color and motion has enabled her to discover structure through chaos. Her newest work explores what lies beneath the surface as she concentrates on magnification and contrast.
