Martin Bennett is best known for what he has called his “Static Image Paintings” (2000-), which incorporate photography, digital manipulation, and traditional painting techniques, and typically feature flat, geometric planes of various colors. Each work is based on a photograph taken by Bennett during trips to Europe and Canada, which he then digitally reduces into black-and-white renderings and projects onto canvas, ultimately using the image as the basis for a painting. As a final step, Bennett sands down the surface of his painting such that the weave of the canvas becomes visible, creating a layered, textured effect.
