Our Featured Artists Carl Bennett has traveled extensively throughout Europe and the UK capturing the natural beauty and texture of abandoned decaying buildings that are slowly being reclaimed by nature. Bennetts work is thought-provoking, intriguing and a little haunting.
Our International Featured Artists Edward Mackenzie work is absolutely fascinating. “I am a responder to things, objects for the most part, which is my media. Tubes of oil paint, brushes and old paintboxes often mean more to me than the art they are employed to make. I collect these and much more. In making art such material is my initial inspiration – responding to things I love – usually manufactured, often commonplace objects. I investigate and ‘play’ with whatever object I am working on and get to know the material in some depth. One could say I learn to speak its language and dance its dance.”
