Diamonds are...
Karen Bennicke DK
Exhibition 2 – 30 september 2010

Thematic exhibition of new ceramic objects by Karen Bennicke, DK

Diamonds are.. pure luxuriation.
Metaphors for beauty, dream and fantasy.
Diamonds breed mystic and mythology - even crime and murder.
Diamonds build material for evergreens.
Diamonds also generate inspiration to other facet objects.
Sculptural variations of the classic brilliant-cut - 'Correct cut'.
Made in the simple materials as clay and glaze.

Karen Bennicke
"My works are spatial visions. Constructions – reminiscent of architecture – that constitute a kind of form-bearing membranes between the exterior and the interior. Light and subsequently shadow, of course, are the main agents in a process of intuitive, mathematical building up of sculptures – which are operating in the field between something distinct, with rather recognizable, functional references, and something undefined, that takes place between the harmonious and the almost chaotic. I try to eliminate the distance between the logical/concrete world of form, that we know from everyday life, and the illogical, unknown and absurd."

She is a member of the Danish Fine Artists Association - BKF (Billedkunstnernes Forbund), the Danish Artist Society (Kunstnersamfundet) and International Academy of Ceramics – IAC.
