Lee Bethel, a Master of Fine Art (Hons), UNESCO laureate in France and awarded artist who works with paper manipulation. Her works have been shown in many exhibitions including the Sulman Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW. Her material, paper, reveals its capacity for resilience and malleability. Conceptually, her works are metaphors for time and memory, as well as the repetition and order of landscapes and nature. Elegant constraints are the foundation of her workings. www.leebethel.com
