Bentley states, 'My work is usually inspired by nature, often with a twist. I love the idea of retaining a sense of wonder in the world. This has led me to slowly and steadily develop my own wunderkammer. I just seem to be a bit stuck on the entomology section -my fascination with insects. My artwork often reflects on memory and identity, love and the collector.'
