I am an Artist and educator with a specialism in offender learning and public engagement. I empower people with the tools for critical thinking which I reflect in my own practice – using the familiar fabric of everyday life in new and intuitive ways, as well as exploring the contexts that these materials, processes and my own body sit in. I have experience of exhibiting, curating and working on a commission basis; including a public sculpture for Associated British Ports and a Public engagement project for the 2017 Turner Prize. I am also a Founder Member and Director of The Feral Art School, an independent Art School in Hull that knows no boundaries.
Work with Convenience
Luke Beech exhibited at the Open Call #2; The Future is... with his 2019 work, 'To Dust'.
To Dust is a durational performance which tracks the journey from a therapeutic process, working hands-on with the earth itself, through to the obsessive and frustrating overworking of the material to fruitlessly produce nothing more than dust and how that process reacts with my body. Using the heat from my hands and a 10kg block of unfired clay, I center my own mental health alongside the act of making and existing as an artist.
