Many artists resort to floral patterns and nature-themed elements in order to give their work elegance, but Emma Bennett uses those things in a manner that transcends uninspired clichés.

Browsing her work, viewers can see that she arranges vegetation beautifully in her paintings, but she stages her compositions on black canvases. With the ominous backdrop setting the mood, the floral designs of each rendering are hopeful elements that audiences can gravitate towards as an escape from the dreary background. Rather than being filler, the importance of every object painted is amplified because they remove viewers from dark spaces.

Emma Bennett, who’s based in the U.K., sees her work regularly exhibited in galleries in and around London. Her surreal concepts and realistic approach to painting are a winning combination for stimulating eyes.
