Alysa Bennett

Alysa Bennett during her exhibition at Cerulean Arts

My work has recently gone through a shift of subject matter from horses, my main interest for years, to goats, my current interest. I was experiencing one of those times in my career when inspiration went on hold and forced me to look for something new. Growing up on a ranch fostered my love of horses, but it was also the place that led me back to my childhood friendship with goats. Goats are intrinsically fun, interesting, smart, and charming. They have appeared in mythology throughout history, really spanning the globe with cross-cultural stories about them and images in their different guises. This current work is the beginning of my journey with these beguiling animals. I enjoy exploring their forms and gestures and, like my work with horses, using feathers to describe them in sculpture and charcoal drawings to capture their individual characters.
