"[Benton's] recent paintings reflect an increased interest in the natural landscape, often depicting trees and other phenomena in ways that bring to mind the luminosity of the earlier paintings but evince an even deeper sense of connectedness and mystery... Through these lyrical landscapes, Benton conveys her encounters with the natural world." Dr. Elinor Gadon
In her early years, Suzanne Benton was a painter of trees, landscapes, abstracts, and imaginary portraits with surrealist tendencies. Now honed by an eventful life in art, her return to the medium demonstrates a mix of influences gathered in the intervening years of travel and art-making.
