Artist Statement
In the beginning my work was focused on “Edges,” those places where two things come together: objects, spaces, people, colors, energies. They are places where worlds of emotion, transition and relationships touch. The quest was to explore the nature of those edges. Some were strong, impermeable barriers allowing nothing to pass through. Some were ill defined and fragile, almost invisible, a barrier to nothing. Through the years, the edges have evolved into swaths and patches of bold color. And rather than defining edges or limits, they have become strokes of a brush that carry the joy and energy of life, the exuberance of living. My hope is to have my paintings be loose and playful, open and free, relaxed and joyful using a broad spectrum of life’s palette. I strive for depth, energy and ‘a certain sophistication’ in my work that is hard to describe. But I know it when I feel it. Cathy M. Bennigson 450 Harrison Ave, Studio 201 Boston, MA 2019
