Beth Galton

When I first saw the collection of ‘Cut Food’ photographs by Beth Galton, I instantly thought of Damien Hirst. The sceptic in me thought she’d taken his idea as her own and made it easier by doing on a significantly smaller scale. Many would agree that cutting a doughnut in half doesn’t really compare to cutting a cow in half…however, when I got down to the coffee cup picture [my favourite of the collection] I realised that there really is little comparison to be made. The movement and familiarity in Galton’s work can not be compared to the awe and curiosity brought about by Hirst, they are different collections by different people and should be viewed as such – I stand corrected.
