Holly Bennett

Holly Bennett pioneered the eco-resin method she uses to create her sculptures.
In 2020, Holly was awarded the Santander ‘Try It’ award.
Holly uses the character in her sculptures as metaphors to tell stories.

British artist Holly Bennett works with resin to create small scale figurative sculptures. Holly’s subjects range from people to animals, to more ambiguous creatures that resemble characters from fiction. Whatever the subject matter, Holly’s sculptures are made with humour and narrative to engage the viewer and invite an open response. For Holly, sculpture is about investigating internal truths and manifesting them in a physical, tangible form.

Holly Bennett’s Education and Career

Holly graduated from Wimbledon School of Art in 1995 with a BA in Sculpture, and from here went on to do a Post-Graduate Diploma in Sculpture at The City and Guilds of London Art School. Over twenty years later, Holly did an MA in Design at the University of the West of England. Preceding and since her MA, Holly has exhibited in Bristol and Bath, and she is currently a member of the Bath Society of Artists.

Holly’s Process

Holly starts each piece by modelling forms in wax, then casting them in a locally made eco-resin. Whether creating sculptures of animals, or portraits of figures, eco-resin gives Holly’s art a unique translucent quality that resembles wax, but is stronger and allows freedom in design. Holly herself pioneered this method and continues to experiment with the medium to create a host of colours, forms and textures in her work.
