With global representation, fine artistPaul Bennettspecialises in contemporary semi-abstract seascapes and landscapes, abstraction and also distinctive portraiture. The three themes are very different in mood, style and perspective, but both endeavour to generate a sense of intimacy and isolation while leaving the subject open to interpretation. The intention is to create from memory to produce finished work that is abstracted and more expressional than representational. Paul's work is in private and public collection worldwide.
It has been Bennett's aim to create work that is most definitely painted; accomplished by using rich textures, multiple layers and brush/palette knife marks. This becomes a way of escaping the everyday, mass produced visuals that we are constantly exposed to and the way in which we now digest and assimilate our visual world. His approach is to record and comment on things that are more than visually apparent: to tease out more than the eye can see, to draw people in and invite them to experience – not just consume – an image.
Polish artist printmaker, living in Gdansk, Poland, working in Gdansk and in Helsinki, Finland. Currently he is working as an assistant teacher at the Intaglio Studio at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland.
The main inspiration for his prints is the city landscape. He likes to show in a bit different way some parts of the city, which people are passing everyday without even noticing…The prints are based on the mirror images of the real landscape.
All the elements are on the image, but reflected, so some viewers can recognize the places but the reflection causes also some kind of confusion. A reflected image gives an impression of the place in sort of magical and abstract way. It is also strongly connected to the tradition of printmaking, where the printmakers have to prepare the plates as a mirror in order to get them printed according to reality.
The other part of his artistic explorations are the prints connected with the
idea of an abstract landscape. In the series of works entitled „The Structure of
Landscape“ the colour and the relief plays the most important role. He usually work
with aquatint, etching and carborundum printmaking techniques.
