Wabi Sabi: Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience; beauty that is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, asperity, simplicity, modesty, intimacy, and the suggestion of natural processes.

Rosetta Bentz is landscape artist and works predominantly in oils. She creates atmospheres that are rich in color, texture and layers. Her process is spontaneous and immediate. The goal of her art is to interpret Nature in all phases of movement, growth, expansion, explosion, decay and evolution. She is endlessly fascinated by the earth's pulse, power and abstractness.
