Lorraine Benton

Fellowship:  September 2005 – September 2008 Attimore Barn

Artform: Sculpture

 

Lorraine works primarily with sculptural materials such as wood, clay, plaster, metal and polystyrene. Perspective and visual illusion are current themes to my work, my intention to create a phenomenological reaction of curiosity and intrigue. The aim of my content is to explore the three-dimensional space that we inhabit, and to draw the spectator into an experience where they feel visually and psychologically transported to another place.
