About Paul Bennett

 

With global representation, fine artist Paul Bennett specialises in contemporary seascape and landscapes paintings, abstract paintings and also contemporary portraiture paintings. The three styles are very different but all strive to generate a sense of intimacy and isolation while leaving the subject open to interpretation. The Seascape and Landscapes paintings are created from memories rather than images to produce finished pieces, resulting in more abstracted and expressive pieces than realistic. The portraiture has a different angle and the aim is to reinvent the mass produced and give it a more visceral interpretation. All the paintings for sale are original art created using oil paint.

 

Found in private and public collections worldwide, Paul’s main aim is to create work that is most definitely painted; an antidote to mass produced visuals consumed everyday. This is accomplished by using rich textures, multiple layers and brush/palette knife marks. Paul wants his paintings to tease out more than the eye can see, to draw people in and invite them to experience – not just consume – an image.

 

Paul graduated from art school in 2001. He is originally from London, but now lives and works in the wild and inspiring Lake District, Cumbria.

 

His works can be found in public and private collections worldwide. Paul's paintings are represented by galleries that also sell the works of Picasso, Hirst, Rothko, Matisse, Newman and Warhol, as well as many other revered artists.

The seascape and landscape paintings created are inspired by memory and experience and are developed using artistic intuition. They are not tied into any specific region or time, they are an eclectic synthesis of place, weather and season.

 

Paul chooses to capture and communicate the experience this way as it reflects life with its unceasing process of observing, experiencing, interpreting, storing – and ultimately – reflecting. The result he strives for is a unique and original visual experience that has captured not only the sense of somewhere/sometime, but also the subtler notion of recollection.

 

Oil paint is the medium that plays a big part in capturing the essence of a faded memory and lends itself nicely to the way he paints. It works well when applied thickly yet can create great depth when worked into the surface sparingly, leaving previous layers partially exposed. The paint is applied in this way to give the artwork itself a narrative and history, where the process of its creation can be glimpsed at in places – not dissimilar to the way in which the memory deals with the hazy recollection of a place once visited.
