    This winter, Pentimenti Gallery is delighted to present a solo exhibition by MICHELLE BENOIT.

    Michelle Benoit embeds her memories of people, places, and events by utilizing combinations of colors. Created with precision, her fragment-like paintings and sculptures bare no mark-making or mounting of any kind. The sheets of lucite refer to physical evidence of time passing like layers of sediment or rings on a tree. Being symmetrical, the work alludes to elements found in nature such as gemstones and insect shells. Despite their material densities, they also have the appearance of fantastic futurist-inspired totems.

    In ReWeave, Benoit is introducing her sculptures to the public for the first time. These glass-like objects are created, like her paintings, with lucite, a bullet-proof material. The reclaimed fragments are then cut, painted, and fused together to unveil a new composition of color that glows luminously from the inside out.
