Experience Has Made Me Rich

Curator's Eye

Upon first glance, you could be mistaken for thinking that Jan Bennett’s paintings are to be placed within the canon of Renaissance or Pre-Raphaelite art. Yet upon further observation, Bennett invites the viewer into an uncanny world of whimsical narratives and surrealist landscapes. However, this is in no way overt or overpowering, with only the slightest nod to the extraordinary through the placement of lone animals and novel compositions. With rich and saturated colour palettes and hyperreal brushwork, Bennett’s work makes for a strong addition to any collection.

Adding to cart… The item has been added

This painting brings together figures from Renaissance paintings with more contemporary artworks in a gallery-type setting. My ideas here are concerned with artistic, personal and financial freedom and independence.  (Title reference is Madonna’s Material Girl)
