Using mixed materials on salvaged metal road and advertising signs as her grounds, Dianne Bennett paints iconic portraits of birds and other fauna as offerendas to the sacredness of all life on earth. Referencing archetypal imagery used in the religious art of many traditions, Dianne’s work venerates and illuminates the natural world while raising questions about what we hold sacred and what is disappearing before our very eyes.
