Bennett Slater

Bennett Slater is a fine artist working out of Toronto, Canada. Utilizing traditional oil methods on wood panels, his influences range from the rich depth of the Dutch masters to gaudy flash of B-movies.
Bennett spends most of his days glued to old science fiction fantasy films and Saturday morning cartoons. This fascination with the imaginatively absurd has formed a surprisingly stable connection with the way his mind imagines the constraints of the physical form, or lack thereof. He is constantly searching to uncover the balances between the structured form we perceive logically, and the nostalgic flirtations we conjure internally.
 His work is partly influenced by the precise forms and soft palettes of the Baroque masters, and the bold geometric intensity of the Russian Avant-Garde and Futurism movements. This dichotomy of contrasting artistic disciplines and influences lends itself to the underlying dualities observed in his work.
