Colour is my daylong obsession, joy, and torment.

Claude Monet

Liquid Light by Narelle Pendlebury

Barbara Bennet

Barbara Bennett is a well known printmaker  producing  fine quality etchings reflecting her love of  the landscape, particularly the unique combination of rivers, forest and spectacular southern coastal scenery  where she lives near Denmark, Western Australia. Her reputation is evident in her high quality works.

With intricate detail  that enhances the stark contrasts of light and dark and with subtle hand colouring techniques vividly illuminating the print, her etchings are almost brought to life, creating moods, emotions and an almost tangible feeling of tranquillity and gentleness, indicative of an artist at one with the natural environment.

Producing an etching is a long  process involving many stages in the working of a plate from which each print in an edition is pulled, the resulting effect not being obtained by any  other  artisitc method.
Barbara has translated numerous images into etchings that enable the viewer to appreciate  more intensely the beauty of landscape
