When Renée Watson and I had our book signing at the Shrine of the Black Madonna, the walls were filled with paintings from Linc Bennet. Most people would categorize his work as collage, but he uses fabric as paint to describe shapes and model form. The paintings are absolutely striking. I have fallen in love with one and will be purchasing it as soon as I have enough money saved. In the meantime, here is a video about Linc and his work.
Oddly enough, listening to Linc talk about panic and not having enough time to make all the work he would like to, is so familiar. I don’t know any artist who works on a project without conceiving of five more in the process. Without further ado, here’s Mr. Bennet’s beautiful work. Enjoy~
