Michelle Benoit


Artist Michelle Benoit calls these luminous constructions of lucite, paint, and wood "Painting Objects" and they are exactly the sort of work that sears itself into my eyeballs and my soul. Which I mean in a pleasurable way, mind you. Longtime readers of this site will know I'm a sucker for any sort of glowing fields of clear or bright colors in art. And Benoit's work take that construct to an astonishing new place. Like pure light and color have been made solid, then decided to hang out with the occasional thin slice of pale wood. Like only a magician or an alchemist could have made them. First brought to my attention by Design Crush.
