Amy Bennett: "At the Lake"

The paintings are glimpses of a scene or fragments of a narrative. I am interested in storytelling over time through repeated depictions of the same house or car or person, seasonal changes, and shifting vantage points. Like the disturbing difficulty of trying to put rolls of film in order several years after the pictures have been taken, I hope the collective images suggest a known past that is just beyond reach. —Amy Bennett
