Bentzen’s highly illustrative work, previously displayed both as street art and on paper, relies largely on her subconscious, a place seemingly consumed with magic and spirituality. Through her artistic process is thoroughly controlled there is also paradoxically a meditative element to producing the intricate geometrical patterns which are a charismatic aspect of her work. Through using a predominately monochromatic palette, with glimpses of carefully selected bright colours, Bentzen’s illustrations explore sex, death and power, examining what lies beneath the surface in a dark yet honest and humorous tone. When ‘her girls’ are frustrated about their situations, they are not ashamed of showing it.
