FIRST SERIES: TRINITY
Ben had been working and exhibiting for five years when he had his first major solo show in Camden at the Living Room Gallery. The organic abstract paintings he showed articulated three phases of his artistic journey.
Expansion explores the creation of matter
Descent captures the decent of particles
Colony reveals growth and order
The artworks are inspired by elemental energy, both tectonic and explosive. Real metals render the scars of chemistry and the physics of heat and pressure. Although the paintings are on a single plane, their depth and texture has a sculptural quality.
The keynote canvas ‘Trinity’ fused all three phases and started the journey to Containment.
Paintings in this series are no longer available for sale, except for 'Mars'.
