Dianne Bennett-celestial terrestrials and holy ghosts

Dianne Bennett’s current series of reverential portraits of birds and other wild beings are painted on salvaged road signs celebrating and advocating for the diversity of flora, fauna, and unspoiled terrain native to the Mojave desert. Subjects are set against abstract landscapes layered with graffitied symbols and language decrying the encroachment brought by human folly and greed, resulting in habitat destruction crucial to threatened species of desert plants and animals. As a message to the future, they are created as an offering and a timely warning to STOP and ask ourselves what is sacred and what is disappearing before our very eyes.

10% of all sales will be donated to the Mojave Land Trust whose mission is to protect the Mojave Desert ecosystem and its scenic and cultural resource values.
