    This winter, Pentimenti Gallery presents a solo exhibition by MICHELLE BENOIT.

    Benoit’s work acts as a tangible remembering of isolated moments in time, and a way of visually capturing constant, fluid layers of experience through color and light. Her use of washes of paint on reclaimed, bulletproof plastic and wood provide the work an inherent history within its materiality. Layers of vibrant colors and transparencies react with available light to provide each piece with their own unique internal luminescence. Each composition is created in relation to the size of the fragments that she collects, with color combinations that are coded and symbolic of a past, a present, a memory, and place. For this exhibition, she will be presenting some of her largest works to date, utilizing color schemes inspired by the walls in her family home.
