About the artist

Born in Australia, a large portion of Beth Mitchell’s career began by investing a majority of her youth developing her practice of digital photography underwater. Her contemporary underwater photographs showcase diverse femininity in a captivating world under the surface. In light of the cultural and environmental landscape during the last few years, her work searches for hope and belonging for both the collective, and within herself. Each body of work explores contemporary womanhood through environmental, social and cultural stories and experiences through her medium of photography and water. In 2021, Beth won the title of the “Brisbane Portrait Prize” with her photographic self portrait “No Land in Sight”, a $50,000 acquisitive award. In 2022, her film, “The Holocene” was commissioned by the Brisbane City Council and sits in their permanent outdoor digital collection. Beth’s contemporary works are featured in public and private collections nationally and internationally.  

Artwork Themes & Subject Matter

Beth Mitchell’s artwork focuses on magical scenes created and found in the ocean or in a pool. Works range from elaborate underwater scenes and fairytale themes, through to stunning oceanic settings. Femininity is a strong feature within the work, exploring a “divine feminine” which is strong and beautiful, showcased for art and away from society’s expectations of “woman”. The work aims to transform the viewer into a new world under the surface through the eyes of the artist.
