Artist based in Sydney, Australia

Charlie Bennell's oil paintings often draw their structural inspiration from existing architectural spaces. These are then reworked with a play on colour, light and shadow to explore the relation of the body and mind to its surrounding environment and the way this relationship informs our lives.

In a world of 24-hour connectivity, there is an increasing need for introspection and meditative spaces. Her work explores this through a minimal and naive aesthetic. Imagery of doorways and staircases suggest a refresh or reframing of the mind, a sense of transience leading the viewer somewhere else.
