JUDITH BENNETT

I am an intuitive painter and my art often takes on a life of its own as I work through the artistic process. This leads me to feel my way onto the surface of the canvas to discover what is unique and seemingly inexpressible at that moment. Nature inspires and excites me. I am drawn to seed pods, flowers, bones, branches, rocks and other organic forms. I am fascinated with the limitless variation, patterns and lines born from these wondrous and intricate contours.

My surfaces are complex –incorporating both organic and geometric shapes. I utilize line, color and texture through many layers of mark-making and transparent glazes to create depth, richness and mystery in my compositions. Glazing, scratching, drawing and rubbing further enhance the surface, hopefully, enticing the viewer to discover what is “not apparent” at first glance.
