Scottish art: Paintings by Margaretann Bennett

'Chef's Table' by Scottish artist Margaretann Bennett

'Chef's Table' by Scottish artist Margaretann Bennett

I just love the art work of Scottish Artists and especially Margaretann Bennett and judging by the hits from the last post featuring her art work so plenty of other people.

Margaretann Bennett who was born in Scotland in 1968. She studied at the Glasgow School of Art from 1987 to 1991

In 2004 Margaretann Bennett was elected a member of the RSW (Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolours). She has also been the recipient of a number of art awards including: The Armour Award at the RGI annual exhibition in 2006 and the William Bowie Art Award at Paisley Arts Institute

Margaretann’s current paintings are of mixed media. She creates a surface of rich colour and sumptuous texture with paint, often incorporating layers of delicate paper which she pre-colours and marks. Bennett’s approach is intuitive rather than analytical: there is deliberate tension between areas of abstraction and finer detail. Most of her contemporary paintings are a distillation of collected experiences into a visual unity and an evocation, rather than depiction of place or objects

In recent years Margaretann has changed her style of art with great success. Not only has it brought her new art awards but also an increasingly appreciative following of art lovers. Her latest art works at Red Rag Gallery are mostly contemporary still life pieces. Each contain wonderful texture and delicacy in the paintings that are difficult to reproduce for the web, but are a joy to viewin the gallery.
