Speaker Series - Steve Bennett
Bending, Breaking, and Blending: An Art Journey
Steve will share his creative process and will discuss the history, concepts, inspiration, and production techniques of his "RE/Frame" artwork on display at the Artisan's Asylum Social Area. He will use the photographic pieces on view as a window into his larger body of work and will describe his experiences-—failures and successes--with creating art that satisfies the soul while offering commercial viability.
Steve will cover topics such as the importance of creating a narrative that conveys your brand, how to connect with your audience, and how to create a framework for success that’s in line with your personal values.
We invite the audience for a Q&A and Steve welcomes his peers feedback!
Steve Bennett is a Cambridge-based visual artist. He began taking photographs more than 40 years ago, in the age of film, and transitioned to digital photography in the late 1990s. Today, in addition to taking and making traditional street, macro, and landscape photographs, he creates photo-based abstract composites designed to transport viewers into the realms of the imagination. Steve’s work has been shown in solo exhibits as well as in juried and member events sponsored by the Cambridge Art Association, Gallery Twist, Fort Point Artists Community, and Galatea Fine Art. Four of his abstracts were on display for a year in Google’s Kendall Square offices in Cambridge and are now being shown at other technology companies in the Boston area. Steve also partners with a motion designer to create mesmerizing videos and multimedia motion studies that have been on display at CambridgeSide and the Boston Convention Center. By day, Steve is the creative director of a web design firm that specializes in websites for authors and publishers.
