Fantastic Paintings By Rachael Bennett - Exhibition on until 1st July
If you have not been to see these paintings already get yourself down to the gallery so you can absorb the rich surfaces. They jump around all over the place - in the image you see here they look like conventional landscapes but actually when you see them in the flesh the surface becomes more dominant. Not just the texture - and they are richly textured with formal marks and informal layering - controlled colour choices used as a composition tool.
It's hard to pinpoint what they are or could be: sea-scapes both above and below the surface, microscopy or images of the core of a gas giant in the farthest reaches of space.
