Sally Bennett

About Sally

Sally Bennett is an abstract expressionist, currently working on a series of paintings titled “Reconstructions.” Each completed piece is actually comprised of two or more separate paintings. It is a complex and often challenging process, but the artist, with more than three decades of experience, admits she enjoys the problem solving aspect.

                        “Art is a language: an instrument of knowledge and an instrument of communication.”

Jean Dubuffet

My paintings are heavily rooted in daily experiences, past, present, fact and fiction. An obsessive fascination with patterns manifests the work. It offers a way to reconstruct and organize the chaos around me.

I accept a new relationship, a fresh beginning and an unexpected ending when the canvas is cut and reconstructed by my son. The work responds with a language of symbol, patterns, markings, color and cottage that promotes a slow viewing and an intimate engagement.
