Trudy Benson
American, b. 1985
Follow

Incorporating the appearance of digital graphics into her decidedly handmade work, Trudy Benson makes paintings for the 21st century. She describes her abstract pieces as “inspired by old imaging software,” but also expresses a desire “to prove that painting is better than computers.” She builds up her mid- to large-scale compositions in layers and uses a range of paints, including enamel, acrylic, spray paint, and oil. The richly textured surfaces feature geometric shapes, stripes, and other flattened forms interwoven with exuberant, sweeping scribbles and thick impasto lines that read as sculptural reliefs. Benson does not shy away from drips, scratches, and errant globs of pigment; she considers accidents an important part of her process and, by extension, the finished piece.
