Rebecca Bennet

Using the sensual qualities of oil, Rebecca creates layered abstractions which explore the dynamics of color, line, and texture. The viewer is encouraged by their abstraction to interpret their experience of the work rather than the work itself.

Bennett's work is born of a manipulation of oil paint while the canvas lies on a flat, horizontal surface. She uses brushes, palette knives, and/or mineral spirits to move the color. The paint and oil create jewels of sensual, layered, vibrant, color which move on the canvas. Using viscous liquid mediums allows Rebecca to explore this movement and fluidity.

Recently, Bennett has enjoyed incorporating the horizon line. What emerges is a piece that is abstract but recalls the landscape. Her process is one in which the artist and the paint are equal partners negotiating the surface of the canvas as if the paint had animated qualities.

Bennett has studied extensively, attending Washington University George Warren Brown School of Social Work in St. Louis, MO, Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa, received a Bachelor of Science, Psychology from Union College in Schenectady, NY, and studied Art History through the study abroad program in Florence, Italy.
