“Nuclear Family” by Artist Amy Bennett

Amy Bennett

“Nuclear Family explores marriage, parenting, and female identity. The series presents a complex depiction of family life, considering both the joy of having a family as well as the universal and substantial challenges involved in raising children and maintaining a committed partnership. For each painting I created a 3D model to serve as a still life. Painting from models helps me to process and extract bits of my experience in order to make what is imagined more concrete. The model becomes a stage on which I develop narratives, and offers me complete control over lighting, composition, and vantage point to achieve my desired dramatic effect. The clumsy inadequacies of miniatures with their slight shifts of scale and reduced detail help me to convey a sense of artifice and distance. I try to paint the scenes in a way that feels like a believable but alternate, fabricated world. My paintings are representations of a miniaturized world playing at reality.”
