Michael Bennett is a self-taught artist whose work and practice both focus on the idea of acknowledging the present moment, as well as concepts of inner exploration and personal perception. Working predominantly in the field of painting, as well as sculpture and installation, Bennett creates very true and honest works which contain a definite sense of humanity and personality. These visual insights / moments stem from deep seeded memories and visual references, with a particular focus on the sense of stillness and inner focus experienced during the creative process. Regardless of the form they take, the works are free of prejudice or bias and are open to individual interpretation. Designed specifically to be experienced and stimulate, rather than simply viewed or used to deliver a theory or direct the audience in a certain direction.
