Jay Williams, Curator of the Morris Museum, Augusta, Georgia,
has written :
“…In Bennett’s paintings visual experience undergoes a kind of alchemy,
what Degas called ‘a transformation in which imagination and memory work together.
(His) works…are evidence of that mysteriously powerful process.
Every one is a love story, demonstrating to gallery visitors Bennett’s passion
for the beauty of paint on canvas.”
