About

About Jane Elizabeth Bennett

Artist Jane Elizabeth Bennett’s practice is an examination of the world in which she finds her self. To her, existence is filled with systems of discontinuity. Memories that fade, language that is inadequate and places that continually fracture and reform.

Through printmaking, photography, installation and detailed research, she attempts to address and potentially resolve these issues of discontinuity.  Her transdisciplinary approach incorporates philosophical, scientific and artistic research to create engaged projects and exhibitions.

‘It follows that the sublime must not be sought in things of nature, but must be sought solely in our ideas.’ KANT
