Industrial Revelation - Jane Bennett
Plein air painting of industrial & maritime sites by Jane Bennett, Artist
I paint the damaged,doomed derelict, & disappeared on Sydney industrial sites off limits to the public: Pyrmont, Barangaroo,Walsh Bay,Glebe,Cockatoo Island,Eveleigh & White Bay. The astounding rate of Sydney’s development has challenged me as buildings are demolished as fast as I can paint them. I have an uncanny instinct for selecting subjects that are about to vanish. Unlike many artists I work on site, setting up my easel by the roadside, on rooftops & demolition sites. The challenges of working outdoors – unpredictable weather, constantly changing light, distractions from passers-by – are compensated for by the depth of knowledge I have gained about Sydney.
