Sally Bennett Baxley


Artist Biography:

Sally Bennett uses the instruments of color and texture to compose symphonies on canvas. Her paintings have a rhythmic quality based on the motifs of abstracted often botanical forms, and, like the melody of a beautiful piece of music, the images advance and recede in a harmonious interplay of color, light, and form that intrigues and pleases the eye. She says that it is the “mystery of color” that drives her to paint; indeed, it is the juxtaposition of one color to another that gives each pattern its voice in the structure of her paintings – the colors do not sing alone, but rather act as a choir, playing off one another’s rigorously calibrated tone to produce a single, harmonious note. She uses tinted plaster and bold colors to build tension that is relieved by her keen eye for balance and powerful composition. Originally trained as a painter at the Maryland Institute College of Art and the Lacoste School of the Arts in Lacoste, France, Bennett spent many years honing her sense for color and balance in the field of interior design. Since she returned to her studio full time in 2007, that experience has informed her development and growth as a fine artist and attracted a committed following among designers and collectors across the country.
