Rosie: “layers created a depth that drew you into the drawings”
Bryony Benge-Abbott, Campbell’s Art Gallery
This month, with Gordon, I visited the first solo exhibition of British Trinidadian artist Bryony Benge-Abbott. Titled Anima, Latin for life force, soul, and spirits, Bryony delights in and grapples with the sensation of losing and finding oneself in nature. To me, the exhibition encompassed nature, femininity, and movement. The mix of mediums, colours, shades and layers created a depth that drew you into the drawings and concepts behind her work. The exhibiton is on at 35 Thurloe Place until the 5th of May.
“These works ask not how to resist change but instead seek to understand that which is in us that cannot be destroyed, finding anima and grounding in nature”. – Bryony Benge-Abbott
