Benjamin Terry

Another undergrad at UNT that is showing some great promise is Benjamin Terry. His work has that unfinished look similar to an impressionist painters. He seems to know when to stop working the surface of the painting. Less is more for Terry and I think his figures tend to be in introspective posses. I also think his use of negative space is general in good balance with the figure. The background color seems to bleed through the figure, giving the whole painting an overall unity.
