Ashley Benton Statement

Artist's Resume >>

Through line, form and space, I investigate the figure
beyond traditional rendering.  My work seeks to capture the essence,
emotion or feeling of the subject / object.  I want to visually
articulate what is around us all the time, but we do not see or notice
until we are reminded.    My paintings are that visual reminder and
connection back to the self,  often emphasizing the
unreachable and something that cannot be captured or held like stories,
metaphors or memories in a permanent state. Making art is
the attempt to make the fleeting more permanent knowing all the while
it is not possible.   Less than reality more than a dream….
