Lot 89 - Kerry Louise Bennett - Espresso Can
Acrylic on Paper
A6 (15x10cm) Original Artwork
Signed on Verso
Working from her home studio in Sheffield, Kerry Louise Bennett (b.1972) makes brightly coloured works loaded with texture and pattern. Her previous lives working in set design, upholstery, photography and as a writer, all feed into the semi-abstract interior and still life compositions she paints. Although she is largely a process led artist, an element of storytelling always emerges in her characterful paintings. Kerry’s work is held in private collections in the UK, USA & Europe.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
I was thrilled to be invited to contribute to this worthy cause and decided to showcase the colour pink in all my pieces - for me it is the most uplifting and impactful colour and even at this scale makes a lively statement. I chose to create two simplified tablescapes, one of my favourite compositional themes, and a pair of cups - one for tea, one for coffee - to indulge my love of pattern.
