Lucie Bennett is a contemporary artist whose work plays with notions of the female form and sexuality.
Her women are alluring but conscious of their power – and on occasion confrontational.
With subject matter ranging from bunny girls to mythologicalnymphs Bennett’s work is, however, set very much in the 21st century. Her women are not merely objects to be looked at, but are playful, sensuous modern women.
Bennett paints using clean lines in gloss paint on aluminum (an almost industrial quality, echoed in her prints), which juxtaposes with the soft female forms she depicts.
In recent works her female forms are intertwined with nature. There is a symbiosis between the two, the line where one begins and the other ends, blurred.
As well as being featured on BBC2′sThe Culture Programme, Bennett was featured on BBC2′s acclaimed documentary series The Apprentice in 2005, as one ofLondon’s hottest emerging artists.
Bennett has exhibited widely and has shown atNew York’s prestigious Armory Fair. Her work is on permanent display inLondon’s Groucho Club and she has been commissioned to create work for Selfridges and House of Fraser.
Bennett’s Winkadorned a Porsche at Silverstone in 2005 and her work has been auctioned on behalf of Terrence Higgins Trust, British Red Cross and ME Support Group.
