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.

There is a world, a world before and beyond language, an ancient, primordial world. We all sense it – some to a bigger extend than others. Hunter gatherer. There was a language of images before these letters. A painterly language that many still intuitively recognize. We don’t always know how to decipher this language verbally, but we feel it calling us from the forests, the mountains, the oceans and the caves. Hunter gatherer painter. Reaching out, tapping our senses, activating our emotions, connecting us to the beyond.
Amy Cutler's seventh one-person exhibition at the gallery includes new works on paper originating in “memories, misunderstandings and anxiety,” that explore the psychological impact of these volatile times while transforming internalized emotions and complex ideas into visual metaphors.
From press release (in Swedish only):
Vår planet förändras varje dag. Vår planet förstörs. Antalet levande organismer minskar drastiskt och mångfalden går förlorad. Enfalden breder ut sig i dess ställe.
