BEN SHEERS – Overdrive
Hosted By 19 Karen
October 27th - November 24th, 2012
My current body of work explores a variety of subjects including cars, still-life, landscapes and a new found interest in the figure. The works are the result of an attempt to paint in a manner which more fully explores the potential of oil paint, whilst still working in a representation manner. I am interested in depicting objects and situations that visually excite me and that make me think ‘that would be fun to paint’. The subject matter of the work varies but is largely tied together by an ongoing concern with the construction of space, a sense of drama and the depiction of light. A number of small sculptures are included in the current exhibition and they can be seen as a three dimensional extension of the objects and motivations that drive the paintings.
