Trudy Benson, Script

Trudy Benson art

I really dig this Script painting by Trudy Benson. I love the splash of yellow against the grey. The contrast between the playful scripty line and the straight lines.

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 uses a mixture 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. She 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.
