Amy Bennett

Stunning oil paintings by Amy Bennett. At first glance they look like photographs of miniature models, which effectively forces you into an almost God-like point of view of each scene.

    It is interesting how we are looking at ourselves in model or miniture 3d…what are we “studying” of ourselves with this idea…I have also seen this with photography.

    I visited Amy’s studio several years ago in DUMBO Bklyn. It was amazing to see her work in progress and process. The Paintings begin as painstakingly constructed models from which she does drawings and then finally paintings.

Artist JR Makes the Louvre’s Glass Pyramid Disappear


Photo by @davidg16er

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post).

The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!
