Beatrice Coron is a visual storyteller; her work explores memories of individuals and communities, political ideologies and mythical legends all interpreted by her artistic imagination.
Beatrice Coron’s work starts with an idea conceived around a theme, then a series of conceptual sketches to capture the general architectural layout and visual elements, that when completed will be cut into four layers of Tyvek. After the initial cutting, each layer is separated, ‘cleaned up’ and then individually finished by adding different details to each piece.
