"Chiaroscuro: Large Red"
by sabine7 / March 30, 2006


Blues, greens, reds, oranges – these are the colours that make up the landscapes and horizons of Texas artist Rebecca Bennett. Bennett’s oil paintings are bursts of positive energy that remain under control on the canvas. Her Chiaroscuro series differs in that various shades of grey dominate the misty scenes, in contrast to a foreground of vivid water, reflected subtly in the sky. Her most recent canvases are painted while they lie flat and she manipulates the movement of the oils with brushes, knives and mineral spirits, layering colour upon texture to create her abstractions.
