Fiona Beveridge (b. 1991) is a Scottish artist living and working in Edinburgh. Beveridge is a multidisciplinary artist who constructs mixed media environments that are vitalised by colour and metamorphosis. Her work is spontaneously playful as she combines drawing and sculptural methods to create sensory stimulated experiences through visual perception and emotion.
Beveridge works impulsively with found material that is then removed of its intentional concept as she forms patterns of imagery through her experimental projects. She is also interested in material purpose and unpredictable surface outcomes, as well as the indulgence of mark making and how natural systems can adapt and alter their own structures to account for new forces and therefore form new orders.
