Radiation Spill (detail) by Trudy Benson
by sabine7 / December 15, 2010


The paint on Trudy Benson's canvas is spread thickly, more solid than liquid. It has been described as being like "cream cheese smeared on a bagel" or "applied with a trowel or a shovel." Other depictions are of "strawberry tooth-paste or purple grout." It all makes for paintings that are about the material and its textures. There are clashes of colour that race and drip and generally behave as they please, though never quite wrenching control from the artist.
