Bennie Reilly is a visual artist working in the mediums of oil painting and mixed-media sculpture. Her practice is informed by an interest in museology, nature and history. Her most recent work explores the significance and potency of natural and historical artefacts while also examining historical and contemporary attitudes towards nature and the representation of the landscape. Her research process involves an ongoing and eclectic accumulation of texts, imagery, photographs and physical materials which is curated to develop paintings and three-dimensional works which can be exhibited in interchangeable formations and which allow historic, current and imagined examinations of nature to sit together. Sculptural works are built from found organic and ready-made materials combined with fabricated elements such as cast jesmonite, resin and bronze.
