I am an artist living and working in the Rudolph, Ohio region of NW Ohio. I have been painting for over 55 years. My current work has a basis in social realism with a bit of “POP” influence. A lot of my work includes under layers of vintage ephemera relating to the subject of the work. Early in my journey I was influenced by the juxtaposition of objects by the surrealists and now by stencil work of street art. I think that good work must be strong enough to engage the viewer. The goal of my work is always to be distinctive, well executed and difficult to ignore. In conclusion, I believe that “Art requires a witness.” Randy A Bennett.
