A solo exhibition of large and small-scale abstract art.
Paintings combine real bronze, copper, brass, iron, silver and gold, combine with shellacs, polishes, inks, oils and acrylics, in a light-responsive finish.
The exhibition is as mercurial as Ben’s mind. Colourful geometric paintings explore balance and tipping-points. Organic abstracts suggest planets, cityscapes, rock-strata, the view through a microscope.
Established abstract artist Ben Fearnside exhibits in Worthing for the first time at The Colonnade Creative Hub, 3rd to 8th of July. The exhibition is free, open every day 10am – 5 pm.
The new solo show features Ben’s unique metal-art. His geometric abstracts reflect the tensions of our time: shapes divide, collide, teeter and strive for unity. Gentler organic works suggests cityscapes, rock-strata, the view through a microscope or telescope, the inside of a machine.
Ben’s works are vibrant and colourful. He uses real gold, silver, bronze, copper, brass and iron, combined with shellacs, inks and washes in a light-responsive finish.
Ben says: ‘I combine materials that generally aren’t compatible. It’s a kind of alchemy. One artistic experiment with ammonia landed me in A&E. I learned the hard way!’
Ben will be at the gallery most days: come and ask about his alchemy. Entry to the exhibition is free. Small and large-scale works are for sale, prints available.
Come and explore.
This is Ben’s sixth solo exhibition in Sussex, his first at Colonnade House – Creative Hub. He’s a local artist and will be at the gallery most days, if you’d like to talk art.
Original paintings and selected prints for sale.
