Inspired by encounters between forensic science and the domestic environment, Bea's work explores our relationship with everyday matter and the insight this gives into human desire, fear and mortality.

As a multidisciplinary artist, subject matter often becomes art material and past artworks are made of lime scale, human ash, gall stones, fingerprint powder and blood. Obsessive repetition often creates a swarm-like effect, giving the illusion that the artwork has taken on a life of its own and is uncontrollably self-replicating and taking over.

Although the human often appears absent, the artwork acts an anthropomorphic portrait that like forensic evidence, tells a story. Objects that hold a personal resonance are raised to the status of relics despite their common interpretation as banal or grotesque. This re-appropriation gives them new life and meaning, transforming them beyond recognition.
