MJ Benson

MJ Benson is a landscape artist living and working on the coast of Maine. Her work, anchored by the illusory horizon, addresses the relationships of earth, sky and water. She works in bold gestures and colors, with an emphasis on abstraction rooted by the familiar. MJ’s extensive plein air painting practice informs larger work done in her studio. Her mediums are oil, acrylic, watercolor and encaustic paint.

In her words…
“ I begin with the horizon, its ever steady line of delineation between the spaces of land, sky, sea. In between are layers and layers of light and color, sprung from my memory but unbound by realism.”
