These paintings by Emma Bennett stopped us in our tracks with their elements of still life set against expanse void-like grounds. By depicting fragile life forms such as flowers, fruit, small birds, fish and hunted game set against dark, monochromatic grounds, Bennett engages with notions of time, transience, life, death and life after death. They also got us thinking of Dolce and Gabbanas‘ A/W 2012 catwalk show and the A/W 2013 trend for Dark Blooms, a perfect reference material to follow. via I Need A Guide.
