Long Story Short NYC / Leigh Behnke (b. 1946, Conneticut, USA) is an American artist based in New York City.

Behnke’s oil paintings blend historical elements with contemporary settings. Digital collaging and various oil painting techniques are employed in an exploration of the fluidity of time and memory. The depiction of artifacts and ghostly figures in empty, yet contemporary, landscapes invites contemplation on the relationship between the past and present. Behnke’s mastery in color and figurative painting enhances the surreal, almost cinematic quality of her compositions.

Leigh Behnke: Time Travelers and Triptychs is now on view at Long Story Short NYC.

52 Henry Street, New York, 10002.

Wednesday to Sunday, 12-6pm.
