Beverley Bennett’s practice revolves around drawing and the perpetual possibilities it possesses. Monochromatic, abstract works, layered with pigment, accompany repetitive marks create a sense of power and energy to the surface of the paper. Acts of play evolve into ritualistic, performative, labour intensive actions that generate a greater understanding of the processes of making, allowing the ‘visual’ to become secondary. Current works created have an almost audible quality allowing Bennett to form collaborative experiments with sound and film.
Bennett's work has been shown nationally and internationally; venues include the CinemaAfrica Film Festival, Stockholm (2018), Encounters Short Film Festival, Bristol (2017), Wysing Art Centre, Cambridgeshire (2017) Spike Island (2017), New Art Exchange, Nottingham (2016), National Gallery of Jamaica, Kingston (2016), Bluecoat, Liverpool, (2010).
Beverley Bennett lives and works in London and received her MA in Fine Art in 2009.
