'Childscapes' - Carmel Benson

Combining figurative and abstract elements, this work is drawn from themes of childhood and nature. Benson's use of corborundum in printmaking creates particularly rich velvety areas of colour and texture. With this strong use of colour, pattern, light and the simplification of perspective, it seeks to explore the integration or isolation of the individual in space and time.
