About the Artist
Myles Bennett (b. 1983, Nashville, TN) is a Brooklyn-based artist working at the intersection of painting, drawing, apparel, and sculpture. His focus on the personal scale of construction and materiality has evolved into an exploration of 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 the Bushwick loft he designed and built from a raw industrial space and exhibits in galleries throughout the United States. His work is part of multiple permanent collections including the Tennessee State Museum.
