Amy Bennett, Artist
The results of the artist Amy Bennett‘s work speak for themselves. The process of how her paintings come to be needs a little explaining. Bennett paints exquisitely detailed townscapes, quaint villages and bucolic communities viewed, often, from a cloud’s-eye-view, with a startling combination of panoramic sweep and deep-focus detail. These mesmerizing pictures are based not on memory or drone videos. Bennett paints her little neighborhoods from painstakingly constructed models, which she fashions in her studio, creating dozens of stories without writing a word. Then she paints. We suspect Bennett might be “touched,” as they say, but in a good way. We’re grateful for her talent.
