Ben Henriques at Jonathan Cooper Gallery
April 19 - May 5
In his first show since 2014, Ben Henriques displays over 30 works of still lifes where he highlights the beauty in everyday objects that populate and document our lives.
Under the painters eye, root vegetables freshly plucked from the ground with soil still clinging to their roots, become a painterly symphony of colour and form. Elsewhere, his gaze turns to his oil paints and brushes in a reflective manner, looking at the materials creating the very surface the image is constructed on.
Although his pieces are non narrative in tone they seek to express emotions; whether moments of stillness and calm or an awareness of the passage of time and fleeting nature of beauty.
Painted over three years, this must-see exhibition marks an important turning point in the artist’s development and style.
