            Graham Bennett: Around Every Circle

            Internationally recognised Graham Bennett is best known in Aotearoa New Zealand for the soaring Reasons for Voyaging outside Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna Waiwhetu, the Tribute to Firefighters using steel from the World Trade Center ruins, and major commissions at Gibbs Farm a...nd at Connells Bay Waiheke Island. Especially prominent in Japan, he has also exhibited widely elsewhere: Korea, Hong Kong, New York, Spain and Australia. His works have featured on the cover of international sculpture publications. Bennett's intricate sculptures speak not only to human invention, the history of voyaging, the need to find balance in our activities and the realities of science, but also the urgency of recognizing and responding to the warning signs of a growing global environmental catastrophe. Bennett's striking sculptures sit atop an extensive and varied art practice embedded in drawing, printmaking, photography. He distils complex ideas by experimenting with scales that range from intimate to monumental, and calls on a variety of media and contemporary technologies. Three major essays by accomplished writers and five elegant image sequences give insight into the nature of his thinking and process, firmly based in Aotearoa New Zealand yet spanning the globe and half a century. Bennett adds personal insights in an absorbing behind-the-scenes account of the intertwining of art and life, ever changing, turning, moving forward.

            Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a Russian painter among the first to truly venture into abstract art. He persisted in expressing his internal world of abstraction despite negative criticism from his peers. He veered away from painting that could be viewed as representational to... express his emotions, leading to his unique use of colour and form.
