Bennett continues to reference wayfinding and measuring devices. His unlikely/ faux mechanisms question not only "what are we measuring?" but also "what do we do with the results?"

Bennett is still taking stock "where are we? Where are we going?"

The language of redundant or repurposed tools suggest that to progress we have to be inventive and seek new standards.

 

The "Loss Adjuster" series follows "Weighting and Waiting" series in bringing attention to the results of measurement that require us to juggle, compromise, reconcile, compensate for loss.

 

He speaks of a reluctance to address issues that confront us and underscores the need to set a direction, agree the problem and mark the trajectory.

Graham's public sculptures grace the foreground of the Christchurch Art Gallery and Connell's Back Sculpture Park and Rocky Bay on Waiheke Island as well as Kurashiki City in Japan, among others. Graham has held numerous solo exhibitions throughout New Zealand and Japan and has participated in group shows internationally.
