When I first saw these oil paintings by Amy Bennett, I thought they were photographs of 3D models, which, as it turns out, is not so far off. From her artist statement: "I am interested in the fragility of relationships and the awkwardness of a group of people trying to coexist and relate to one another. To that end I create miniature 3D models to serve as evolving still lifes from which I paint detailed narrative paintings." The result is a beautiful bizzaro suburban world filled with the mysterious and the mundane. I highly recommend taking a moment to view the entire collection on her website.
