METAL ON CANVAS
AN ALCHEMY OF RAW METALS
Bronze, copper, iron, silver and gold combine with shellacs, polishes, inks and washes in a light-responsive finish. Contained abstract geometry suggests planets, cityscapes, field patterns, rock-strata, the view through a microscope. Slow change over time and tipping-points.
Ben’s mind is as mercurial as his materials: explore the creative journey.
Three sales and a commission.
Across March and May I've had an flurry of on-line sales. Companion portraits 'Electric Matador' and 'Lincoln' are new work, not yet exhibited, and have been snapped up by a corporate collector of my work. 'Ropewalk', one of my small Containment paintings, with the red line running through the maze, found a new home in Brighton.
A commission saw me exploring a new colours, with 'Containment 19 20'. (above). Read about what happened in my Art in Containment blog.
