Myles Bennett

myles-bennett-reartiste-objectsreartiste1.jpgMyles Bennett is a New York-based artist working in painting, drawing, apparel, and sculpture.  His focus on the personal scale of construction and materiality has evolved into an exploration of the intersection between gesture and the inherent properties of surface. Whether resulting in figuration or abstraction, the process reveals the sensual and spatial relationship between the material's structure and the body itself.  

A graduate in architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design, he currently lives and works in New York and exhibits in galleries throughout the United States.
