Candy Sea is a female form adopting a classical pose with arms lifted out of the frame, presumably raised above her head, drawing the viewer to the centre of the image. Colour plays a significant role in Bennett's work; the candy blue here depicts the sea, Bennett being a keen cold water swimmer. The colour brings a cool sensuality to the pose.
Continuing to work in colour, Terracotta presents the image of a seated woman in white against a pale pink terracotta background.
Talking about the work, Lucie said: "I wanted to make an image with a sumptuous colour that wasn't too much of a typical pink. I've been working with clay recently and really love the bisque colour from the first firing in the kiln. This had me thinking about clay, terracotta and its history. I imagined a figure seated in a warm room in a city like Siena, where this earth pigment was produced during the Renaissance"
In contrast, Girl in Ink is absent of colour, encouraging the viewer to focus on the delicate and minimal single line.

Bennett said about Girl in Ink: "I've been doing a lot of line work with Japanese brushes and ink and learning Japanese calligraphy. The brushes have a beautiful flow to them and produce textured brush marks which I wanted to keep visible in some areas of this work. We have added an extra glossy varnish to the printed line which has a satisfying wet 'just finished' inky look to it."
Emerging as an artist in the early 2000's, Lucie Bennett has exhibited in London, New York, Miami, San Francisco, Hong Kong and Singapore.
