British artist Rachael Bennett is interested in the lit up spaces within a landscape, created by natural transitions; those uncertain, indeterminate spaces caught between one world and another. Her work is descriptive of form, light and place in an atmospheric way, conveying a sense of a scene from which it is possible to find a personal space and interpretation from within.
The materials and the image that is formed are integral, one makes the other and the interplay of materials and surface are an important aspect of the dialogue. Rachael travels to collect ideas but the heart of her inspiration comes from home. She lives the in dockside area of the seaside port of Teignmouth, her garden lies adjacent to where salt meets fresh water and land melts into sea. It is an intimate place of constant physical change and human transaction within the infinite possibilities the world can offer.
