Barbara Lucilla Benish is an artist, curator, writer and farmer, originally from California. Her art challenges and plays with the historical narratives that create dystopic environments, such as we find ourselves in today. Often community based, Benish's art engages beauty and form in a passionate embrace of the natural world. She lives and works in California and Central Europe. Benish is Founding Director of ArtMill in rural Bohemia, an international eco-art center. Her books include Form, Art, & the Environment (co-authored, 2018, Routledge), and the upcoming Art +Food+ Farming (co-authored w/Nathalie Blanc, 2022).
