Artist Jane Elizabeth Bennett’s practice is an examination of the world in which she finds her self. To her, existence is filled with systems of discontinuity. Memories that fade, language that is inadequate and places that continually fracture and reform.

Artist Jane Elizabeth Bennett’s practice is an examination of the world in which she finds her self. To her, existence is filled with systems of discontinuity. Memories that fade, language that is inadequate and places that continually fracture and reform.

Through printmaking, photography, installation and detailed research, she attempts to address and potentially resolve these issues of discontinuity. Her transdisciplinary approach incorporates philosophical, scientific and artistic research to create engaged projects and exhibitions.

‘It follows that the sublime must not be sought in things of nature, but must be sought solely in our ideas.’ KANT

Jane Elizabeth Bennett graduated from the University of Central Lancashire with a BS (Hon) in Drawing and Image-making in 2010 specialising in Printmaking and Installation.

In 2013 she completed her Master’s Degree in Site and Archive Intervention from the University of Central Lancashire, studying under Professor Lubaina Himid and Charles Quick. During this time she expanded her professional practice engaging with place, new technologies and philosophical discourses.

Bennett is currently working as the Printmaking Studio Technician for the Artlab Research Unit at the University of Central Lancashire and is available for commissions, residencies, collaborations, and exhibitions.
