Margaretann Bennett’s Paintings

0

Margaretann Bennett‘s current paintings explore the Scottish west Coast landscape through use of mixed media. She creates a surface of rich colour and sumptuous texture with paint, often incorporating layers of delicate paper which she pre-colours and marks. Bennett’s approach is intuitive rather than analytical: there is deliberate tension between areas of abstraction and finer detail. Most of her contemporary paintings are a distillation of collected experiences into a visual unity and an evocation, rather than depiction of place.

Margaretann Bennett says: “I seek to convey a sense of time passing and lives lived, drawing on elements where man has left his mark, for example lines and shapes created by old stone walls, steadings and sheepfolds.”
