Bethany Rose Rusen – June 2013
Bethany Rusen (BFA Tyler School of Art ’03, MFA UMass Dartmouth ’10) draws on a wide variety of interests, materials, theories, and personal histories to construct her mixed media, site-responsive sculptural objects. Her work explores the visceral and emotional aspects of body experience and has been exhibited nationally at a variety of venues, including Texas Tech University, Boston University and Concordia University in Minnesota. She is currently the ceramics studio manager at Main Line Art Center in Haverford, PA. Rusen creates mixed media and found object sculptures with reclaimed radio tubes, sprinkler heads and spare parts and lumber from The Resource Exchange. She has also developed large scale installations with found object assemblage, including Personal Possession as part of her recent residency at the Please Touch Museum.
