‘Oystercatcher’ focuses on and celebrates spiritual and physical homes alongside reoccurring topics of heritage, identity, connection and strength.
The focus on the flying oystercatcher comes from the presence of them on local beaches in the Isle of Man, their movement, spiritual associations and symbolism. As well as being a familiar bird in the Isle of Man, oystercatchers can travel great distances and have multiple homes. Exploring the topic of home as someone who has mixed heritage, with close family in different continents, Beth appreciates the connection and symbolism the bird and the focus on nature represents in this painting.
