Elaoise Benson works across painting, poetry, and performance. Currently living and working in Watchet, her work explores the intersections of feminism, grief and environmentalism. Drawing inspiration from the Somerset landscape, Benson paints the landscape in liminal moments. Whether the gap between branches or a pigsty nestled amongst the trees; these spaces become portals to infinite possibilities. The landscape and her experience of it continue to change in the process of her making, so Benson focuses on how to make this transitory experience of nature tangible.
