Trudy Benson


Trudy Benson - 'rainbows, grids, circles...'

This young Pratt-educated painter is moving toward a maximalist abstraction. The effect is a bit like a 1980s geometry textbook spazzing out and exploding on the wall. Benson works within a deliciously caffeinated language of gestures and shapes - the smear, the dripping line, rainbows, grids, circles - to create compositions that pair smooth, glossy sections with paint applied so thickly it resembles Play-Doh.
— Scott Indrisek, Modern Painters

I love her.
