Tabitha Benedict, born in a small town in upstate NY, amongst the rollings and vast countryside. Her love and connection to nature began as a young child when her grandma would take her on frequent visits to Rogers Environmental Center. The Birds of Prey was her favorite subject. Throughout her life she was always finding ways to revel in the outdoors. An Outward Bound backpacking trip through Hurricane Island in Maine, a secluded 3 day backpacking trip in the Anazazi Indian Reservation in Utah, Scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and her first deep water dive in Belize, just to name a few. Nature inspires Tabitha and she has made a name for herself by connecting the spirit of the animal world with the physical realm. Through the ancient art of Fresco Secco Tabitha developed a unique style based solely on intuition. "When I discovered the use of Venetian Plaster as a medium I had felt like I had arrived home, the process became a metaphor for my life". Each painting evolves through the accumulation of countless layers, fusing together mixed media and plaster. Each layer delivers new ideas and experiences, the colors mix and intermingle as they are layered. Like magic the painting starts to create a story of its own burying the past with opaque layers and letting other layers remain translucent.
I currently finished my first public art project for Colorado Mental Health Institute in Pueblo Colorado. I created 5 Large paintings based on the 5 elements of Feng Shui, Fire, Metal, Earth, Water and Wood. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese Concept that aims we live in harmony with our surroundings. I used these five elements as building blocks for a well-balanced reception area that will be part of the hospitals new wing. The 5 elements are universal and will have an energetic essence each with their own flavor. Chi-Energy. Each painting is harmonious in size 10-14 ft long so that each painting and element has equal force. Each painting was placed accordingly in the direction relevant to the element it represents.
