Rosanne Bennett  

“Fig. #145 , Fig. #146” – mixed media


“While tasked to create during this global pandemic I found myself returning to my collages of drawn images from one of my Mom's outdated nursing manuals. With a painted fluorescent orange warning stripe, I knew they were as complete as they would ever be.”

Rosanne Bennett is an artist currently based in West Kelowna, BC, Canada. Informed by living in Vancouver during the 2010 Winter Olympics, her works have merged both landscape, memory and a love/hate relationship with nostalgia. Rosanne's minimal colour works appear largely on paper, while her influences are from post WW2 abstraction and the contentious history of the colonial Canadian landscape in painting. Rosanne holds a BFA from Emily Carr University 1994 and a Diploma in Art History from University of British Columbia 2012. Following her studies Rosanne has participated in historic regional exhibitions including Artropolis 2001and the Drawn Festival 2010, with a driving interest in independent artist initiated events and exhibitions.
