About the Artist

Canberra-based emerging artist Bethany Saab started painting with intention in 2020.

A practicing psychologist, Bethany holds no formal training in fine arts – yet she is quickly finding her place amongst Australia's emerging artists to watch.

Bethany’s paintings have been described as ‘intimate glimpses into personal spaces’ and as an example of ‘joyous expression’ through the use of pattern

Starting with two sold-out mini releases in 2020, Bethany went on to show her first solo exhibition with Michael Reid Northern Beaches in January 2021. Painting predominantly still life, Bethany’s paintings have been described as ‘intimate glimpses into personal spaces’ and as an example of ‘joyous expression’ through the use of pattern (Peter Haynes, The Canberra Times, May 2021).

Bethany was featured on the arts podcast Interview with An Artist in April 2021, as well as appearing in The Design Files 'Emerging Painters you should know'; ArtEdit Magazine; and The Australian Newspaper ‘Inaugural Summer Exhibition’.

She has also participated in multiple group exhibitions in Australia and was Finalist in the 2021 Lethbridge 20000 Small Scale online award. 

 

Bethany is preparing for her second solo show with Michael Reid in October 2021.
