Graham Bennett’s sculpture is one of a number of recent works that reference the struggle to communicate coherently, increasingly complex technologies, and the signs and signals on our journey that we need to recognise and respond to ie to heed the evidence of degradation as a warning of the precarious health of the globe and catastrophe ahead.
The power of his work and art practice is that it underscores the importance of research, reflection, revision and actions that respect our physical and social environments in realising a vision for the future.
Graham was born in Nelson and is Christchurch based. Exhibiting for over 40 years, he has had over 60 solo shows in New Zealand, Australia, Japan and Hong Kong, and has participated in many group exhibitions.
