Jenny Bennett’s work is all pertinent to nature, a reality depicted by a scrupulous observer, a world that has a privileged relationship with Jenny. She observes, analyses and conceives works of art that the viewer immediately venerates.
Her balances compositions, meditative colours and unique contrasts have been envisioned by a sharp mind which reads in nature a great source of inspiration. The spectator is captured and moved by her black and white moonscapes in which her deepest mastery transpires. Bennett’s competence with primary colours originates masterpieces that bring the observer to admire remote and unknown worlds. At first glimpse, Bennett’s paintings can disclose anxiety, while at a more profound analysis become gracious horizons of inner peace. Faraway worlds appear closer and closer; aliens stones and massive boulders talk about a nature that only the trained eye of Jenny can perceive.
Fantastic compositions that suggest Jules Verne’s literature bring us back to the innermost memories of our early readings. Albeit, Bennett’s talent is discovered in admiring her flower compositions, her fragments of forest. Detailed paintings, meticulously conceived, from which a sense of tranquillity, but also of unrest and loneliness, transpire. The use of hues and the harmony between forms and shades enlighten and electrify Jenny’s work. Bennett desires to discover a world that she does not fully possess: an impenetrable universe full of boundaries that encourages us to decipher our subconscious and uncover our buried dilemmas.
Bennett is a complete and enigmatic artist with a unique creative expression that recalls the works by the Italian Antonio Ligabue, a genius in his agrestal masterpieces.
Inspecting her artworks, Emily Dickinson could state:
“To tell the Beauty would decrease
To state the Spell demean
There is a syllable-less Sea
Of which it is the sign”
Jenny Bennett is a great artist who lives in a world the viewer can only aspire to belong.
