When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Amy Bennett 2

This series was under way the first time I posted her work (see January 2009). She creates models of a specific environ to act as backdrop for her odd little narratives (here, a small summer vacation lake; previously a tiny neighborhood). The scenes are both intimately familiar and peculiarly mysterious. Looking at her paintings is a little like spying on your neighbors, but without the guilt.
Her website is really worth looking through: www.amybennett.com
