What makes my art innovative?
I am not afraid to try new ideas. Fear of failure is something I never learned. A new idea that I've never tried before? Now that's a challenge I can get excited about.
And I am full of new ideas. I have a vivid imagination, and creating is in my DNA. When I get a new idea, I just have to try it. Obsessive? Maybe. But, my life would not be as fulfilling if I could not create.
To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong. Joseph Chilton Pearce
I believe that there are no rules in Art. Creativity is about imagining something, then figuring out how to create that something. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. But in the end, you are constantly learning.
My name is Liana Turnbull Bennett. I have not always been an artist. While other artists were earning degrees in art, I was testing and analyzing the latest high tech materials. This led to a degree in Mechanical Engineering, were my career was spent creating real life applications from these materials. Only later in life could I afford to indulge my real passion, art.
But, without an art degree, would anyone take me seriously? Maybe not. But at least I will get their attention. I believe that my background gives me a creative edge. Unencumbered by traditional art training, I have the freedom to combine my art with my high tech design knowledge. I know materials, how they behave and react, and understand their chemistry and properties. I am not afraid to try new ideas, to step outside the boundaries of traditional art.
I believe a painting can be more than just paint on canvas. As a Mechanical Designer, I am trained to see ideas as 3-Dimensional images. As a result, I am always trying to find a better way to translate that image to a 2 dimensional canvas. This unconventional thinking leads to innovative art.
I was born in San Bernadino, California to an Air Force family, and lived and traveled all over the US and Europe. This exposed me to a
variety of cultures and ideas and was an education in itself. I now reside, in my favorite state, Colorado.
