A look at Artist, Charles Benefiel

"Wingman" Charles Benefiel ©

I was going through a very old, but not finished, notebook where I kept artwork I admired and re-discovered the work of Charles Benefiel.

Introductory piece to Charles Benefiel's work

I first saw his work on the cover of a journal, perhaps Orion.

I didn't know much about him, and have only today learned he suffers from OCD, and stipples his large sized work.

Much of his work is lean, a figure, numbers, I believe black and white, huge and penetrating.

A seach on the internet revealed he may now be living in Philadelphia but I don't see any evidence of new work, or an exhibit for the last several years.

I'd like to see more of Mr. Benefiel's work and have reached out to him.
