Opening Reception: May 11th (from 6pm)

Keep it simple and do it with love. In my painting I pursue the inner life in preference to the external. In one sense all art is inner if it works at all. It is all a searching, as it occurs to the painter, an expression of truth to the subject.
I value the poetic and the lyrical in painting and life and consider life itself to be an affirmation and a blessing, something to be cherished and nurtured while it is also painful and utterly impossible at times…‘  Benet Haughton

Benet Haughton’s interview with Jim Griffin for Beshara Magazine is published in early May.
