Angelique Benicio

I am first and foremost an oil painter. It is my favorite medium by far. What was once only a shifting image in my mind’s eye takes form on canvas. Wearable, mixed media sculpture and performance story telling is another of my obsessions. These performances help inspire themes in my paintings. The two mediums go hand in hand for me. In my studio I create and manipulate the materials at hand. When I interact with a live audience the experience introduces fresh visions. Many of the most exiting concepts for new work have taken shape when I’ve had to adapt to a space which I’ve transformed but cannot entirely control.
