Dominique Sarah Benton
Dominique's artworks catalyse discussions on social, cultural, and historical activities. The interplay between style and subject matter creates a space that mediates the relationship between the abstract and the concrete. This interaction sheds light on societal inequalities, particularly those that a female working in affluent and underprivileged schools experiences. Through these interactions with people from various age groups, social classes, and economic backgrounds, she has witnessed prejudices rooted in biases related to age, race, sex, and gender. She uses her training in art and pedagogy as a guide to reflection, and her commentary extends to the superficiality of consumerism, the appropriation of style and mass production, and the prejudices inherent in a capitalist society.
