Titled “Balance and Humility” Photo by Benjamin M. Prewitt
There aren’t enough words to describe the creative talent that is Benjamin M. Prewitt. At first glance, his paintings grabbed me and somehow made me feel whole. The photo above is a photograph of one of them. I could look at them for hours. Much like his paintings, Prewitt exudes passion, love and grace with his inspiring and beautiful words of love, struggle and his day to day experiences as an artist. His website titled, Expressions of my life – An evolution of art, My journey through life as an artist, father, and person with young onset Parkinson’s, will make you feel at home and treat you to a dose of reality, gratitude and smiles. I am so lucky and honored to present to you all an interview I did with Benjamin.
Connie: Your paintings can be very intense and exudes all kind of emotions. I understand that this may be too general a question, but what inspires you and your pieces?
Benjamin: It’s funny you should use the word emotions in conjunction with my Art. I think it was best said by a person who follows and collects my art that I seem to produce “Emotional Expressionism.” One the things you’ll find in my comments as I communicate with people on my website is I often paint the things I need in my life or the feelings that I am experiencing the most clearly at the time. Also, I believe that in my 2013 Press Release which was written about me and for me, but not by me, explains it and me fairly well.
