   Amy Bennett: Nuclear Family

March 9 - June 16, 2019 - The Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, Vermont

Working with common themes such as time, isolation, and transition, Amy Bennett is interested in the fragility of relationships and people's awkwardness in trying to coexist and relate to one another. To that end she creates miniature 3D models to serve as evolving still lifes from which she paints detailed narrative paintings. Using cardboard, foam, wood, paint, glue, and model railroad miniatures, Bennett constructs various fictional, scale models. Recent models have included a town, neighborhood, lake, theater, doctor's office, church, and numerous domestic interiors. The models become a stage on which she develops narratives. They offer her complete control over lighting, composition, and vantage point to achieve a certain dramatic effect.
