Artist Profile: Trudy Benson

    Trudy Benson creates vibrant, multi-layered paintings inspired by digital aesthetics and imaging software. Her works feature a mix of hazy, gestural linework, and dizzying grids, created by hand using enamel, acrylic, oil, and spray paint. Benson expertly blends different colors, textures, styles, and shapes, creating dynamic and surprising compositions. Through her paintings, she explores the relationship between technology and human interaction, as well as the blurred line between digital and analog selves.

    After earning her BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, she went on to receive her MFA from Pratt Institute. Benson has exhibited her work in cities like New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Stockholm, and Geneva and her art can be found in esteemed collections such as the Portland Museum of Art, Aïshti Foundation, Saatchi Gallery, and Hudson Valley Museum of Contemporary Art.
