Amy Bennett

Growing up in the suburbs of Northern California I have a particular fondness for art that finds extraordinary occurrences in mundane places. That’s why I really like Amy Bennett’s series of paintings, all of them portraying slightly weird neighborhoods, and how the people in them are all forced to co-exist with one another.
All of the paintings are based off of 1:87 scale models of houses, but she decided to create stories and families for each home, which are now depicted in each of her pieces. Beautifully creepy stuff.
