• Forgiven: MFA Thesis - Painting

      Bennett, Michelle (2014-05)
      My work reflects an effort to channel memories and experiences onto the canvas. I paint about pain and internalized struggle where language is often inadequate to describe these effects. I am interested in creating psychological spaces with figures whose unease is uttered through their exposure and isolation. Innocence warped by experience. The process becomes a personal and painterly emotional rollercoaster reflecting life’s weight and struggles.
