Amy Bennett

Beautiful quasiphotorealistic paintings. They slightly recall and frankly transcend the tilt-shift photography trend of a couple of years ago. Some are small – on the scale of snapshots or even wallet-size photos – and others are two feet on a side and more. A clean, detailed yet oddly featureless calm in these paintings is electrified by small (almost faceless) figures. Surreality is intensified by partial cutaway views in some paintings.

Beautiful stuff. Go look at the whole portfolio.

    Really intriguing work! Some of the subjects are disturbing, too (the prone/prostrate body in the image you feature above; a woman being held up against a wall by a man, in another).

    What concerns me, though, is your comment about tilt-shift photography being “the … trend of a couple of years ago…” Waitaminute! Does this mean I’ll be de trop if I bust out the LensBaby for some portraits of Henry Winkler in his natural habitat?!?
