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.
Bennett's work has been shown nationally and internationally; venues include the New Art Exchange, Nottingham (2016) Dissonance, National Gallery of Jamaica, Kingston (2016) Digital, the Bluecoat, Liverpool, Actions curated by Sonia Boyce, and Global Studio's (2010).
Beverley Bennett lives and works in London and received her MA in Fine Art in 2009.
