Bennett completed four large-scale paintings contrasting the dichotomy of the city’s baroque sensibilities with its location on the edge of an untamed swamp.

Suzanne Bennett received her B.F.A. from U.C. Santa Cruz and her M.F.A. from Brooklyn College. She has received several awards and residencies including Yaddo, Ucross Foundation, Whitney Museum of American Art and a Dedalus Foundation Grant for the Vermont Studio Center. She currently resides in Brooklyn, NY and is the studio manager for painter John Currin.

“As I worked I looked out the windows of the studio constantly, and I felt engaged with the life I observed. I watched myself unfold and connect. Ultimately, the landscape that changed the most was my own.”
