Working with common themes such as time, isolation, and transition, Amy Bennett is interested in the fragility of relationships and people’s awkwardness in trying to coexist and relate to one another. To that end she creates miniature 3D models to serve as evolving still lifes from which she paints detailed narrative paintings. Using cardboard, foam, wood, paint, glue, and model railroad miniatures, Bennett constructs various fictional, scale models. Recent models have included a town, neighborhood, lake, theater, doctor’s office, church, and numerous domestic interiors.
Enticing viewers to take a closer look, this exhibition of miniatures, models and dioramas explores interior and exterior architecture in a range of scales. Some works contemplate the structure and its place in history as a monument to architectural creativity, others pay homage to the history of an urban environment, yet others depict fanciful, surreal places that could only exist in miniature.

Amy Bennett’s dreamlike scenes depict a miniat- urized world playing at reality.
Amy Bennett's upcoming exhibition at Richard Heller Gallery, entitled "Small Changes Every Day," is her first solo exhibition in four years. Featuring all new works, Bennett's dreamlike scenes depict a miniaturized world playing at reality.
Bennett designs and paints from miniature 3D models, allowing her total creative control of the scenes she imagines. She is able to manipulate composition, light, and vantage point, often in an attempt to simulate the inadequacies of memory, dreams, and the imagination.
We are proud to participate in the third edition of Chart Art Fair in Copenhagen. The fair is focused on contemporary art from the leading galleries in the Nordic region. It showcases a selection of carefully selected and invited galleries and features an ambitious collateral programme of talks, performances and special projects.

Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to present Amy Bennett’s third solo exhibition in the gallery. The exhibition presents paintings, monotypes and sculpture.
The monotypes in OUT IN THE OPEN are part of a series of lakefront images that Amy Bennett has been developing over the past couple of years (first part exhibited in January 2009 at Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica, US). All works are created through a miniature model (1:87) built in her studio. With the monotypes she wanted to get closer the subject and describe more intimate encounters. The freshness and immediacy of the monotype encouraged her to work quickly, painting each image within two days, an extreme departure from her month-or-so-long process of creating a painting.
Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to present Amy Bennett’s first solo exhibition at the gallery.
