DESCRIPTION

Using the landscape diorama as an evolving still life, Amy Bennett creates a series of detailed narrative paintings. The relentless fecundity of nature depicted against a painted sky backdrop acts as a staging ground for her evolving fictions. Working with common themes such as transition, aging, isolation and loss, Bennett's works relate to the fragility of relationships and the awkwardness of a group of people trying to coexist and relate to one another.
