Aurelia Bennett is a painter in London and an Art History student at the University of St. Andrews. She believes that her knowledge in Art History creates a firm boundary from which to explore her own themes and methods.
Her work revolves around the themes of nature and organic forms, as well as spirituality, as a vehicle to explore colour and form. Colour is the most important part of her paintings, as she believes it is the most expressive element of art. Before looking closely at the subject of a painting, the colour will convey a mood and stimulate an emotional response. Whether it is an energising piece, or one that is more tranquil, she aims to lift the mood of the viewer.
