i’m jealous of amy bennett


Ah, the simple and serene suburbs. A place where nothing ever happens… wait a minute, is that a body in the front yard?

I love suburban subject matter, especially when things aren’t quite right… because, let’s face it, we all know that there’s crazy stuff going on in most of those houses! And lucky for us, painter Amy Bennett is giving us a little sneak peek into a few of them in her series entitled Neighbors. These scenes almost look like architectural models of an ideal suburb (the perspectives, the cut-aways, the perfect little trees and cars) untilĀ  you look a little closer. Obvious artistic talent and a really good story – you can’t ask for much more than that.

    I am jealous too. Not only are they fun (and beautiful) to look at it also seems like it would be a fun series to get lost in. the possibilities…….

    I know. I’d love to see these in person. I bet you could see all sorts of things with a closer view and a bit of time.
