Edge of the Sublime: Enamels by Jamie Bennett by Jeannine Falino
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The American enamelist, Jamie Bennett, established his international reputation in 1986 when he first produced enamelled jewellery using unique, electroformed shapes. Bennett employs rich colours and delicate brushwork inspired by studies of microscopic organisms, the natural world, and cultural influences gleaned during his travels to Italy, Morocco, and Turkey. Tracing a career that began with these energetic abstract forms this publication conveys the evolution of Bennett's diverse work. In addition, his oil paintings and wall reliefs document his ongoing interest in the domestic sphere and in nature as conceived in a compartmentalized format, providing the viewer with simultaneous perspectives on a single theme. It includes three essays that address the artist's preparatory drawings, as well as the historical and conceptual aspects of the artist's lifework. An exhibition history and bibliography serve as useful guides for the serious scholar.
