Solitude by Lisa Bennett Acrylic on canvas, 24 x 36 unframed / 26 1/2 x 36 1/2 framed
The environment influences Lisa Bennett a great deal, as well as her concerns towards its well-being. Her Finnish upbringing in the Canadian landscape also plays a huge role in shaping her view of the world and how she projects that view.
Bennett's current work comes from years of experimentation with texture, form and colour. Playing with texture by using different mediums and combining brilliant colours inspires her to explore the exciting relationship between the two. Creating rich and potent textures often supplies an element of surprise and allows her to capture the beauty of the mundane and hopefully spark the viewer’s imagination.
