DESCRIPTION

For her first solo show at the gallery, New York based artist Trudy Benson creates phosphorescent large-scale paintings that pulse with energy, perspective, and illusion. She stimulates the viewer’s senses with her cosmic titles and imagery, fresh color-vision, and masterful objectification of paint – a lively balance between the physicality of the medium and the poetry of her deliberate brushstrokes. Although the paintings are undeniably abstract, one cannot help but enter into the defined, theatrical space of the work in which the nonrepresentational melds with the figurative.
