James Bentley Artist Bio:
Lives in and works in Montreal Quebec Canada. ARTIST'S STATEMENT It is not a pretty picture I am interested in but truth: how I see things. With each subject, I try to paint as honestly as I can, to paint what I am looking at, to understand what seeing really is. To do this, I become conscious of what I sense when looking, which allows me to work instinctively. Although the individual features are important, it is a matter of trying to see whats beneath the surface: to see the whole structure fitting together in space. This requires both a connection to and a degree of detachment from the subject. This reaction becomes the Painting.
