Bennett Miller is a sculptor and installation artist creating large-scale works for exhibitions Australia-wide. He spent five years obsessed with mini golf for his Golf War series of 2003-2007, which retold the story of a war in Iraq across nine different courses. More recently Bennett has been working exclusively with dachshund dogs. For GARDEN/ART/ACTION (2010) he created a topiary maze at dachshund height. In May 2010 Bennett will stage his ambitious Dachshund UN project for the Next Wave Festival in Melbourne.

In 2006 he undertook a residency at the International Art Space in Kellerberin where he presented the solo exhibition Ed Devereaux. He has also held other solo exhibitions at the Breadbox Gallery (2003) and Canberra Contemporary Art Space (2007). In 2008 he was the recipient of an Australia Council New Work grant, won an Award of Excellence in the Joondalup Art Prize and was featured in Australian Art Collector.

He was included in two major Western Australian survey exhibitions, SILVER: ARTRAGE 25, Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (2008), and Linden1968 at the Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts in Melbourne. He also spent three months in Sydney as a resident artist at the Gunnery Studios in Woolloomooloo, which resulted in a solo exhibition at Chalkhorse Gallery.
