Kim Bennett's work enacts and refers to the cross-pollination between natural and human-built systems and interrogates concepts of selfhood and the individual voice. Her practice ranges across disparate processes, from collaborative embroideries with her young son and botanical watercolor paintings to power-sanded spray paint on metal. For the Project Room, Bennett presents a group of embroideries cross-stitched and dyed from the simultaneous perspectives of two generations. These hang alongside a drawing of a non-native forsythia branch bought at a Northern California grocery store, an East Coast transplant's infrastructure-enabled spring celebration.
Kim Bennett earned an MFA from the California College of Arts in 2012 and is currently based in Berkley, CA. Exhibitions include; Steven Wirtz Gallery, San Francisco, CA (2013); Pied-à-terre, San Francisco, CA (2012); Bronx Art Center, Bronx, NY (2010) and the Cue Art Foundation, New York, NY (2010.) This will be Bennett’s first exhibition inTexas.
