Says Ben of this work: “When love is new and the world is only for lovers it seems to be almost instinctive to want to leave some kind of trace or record of those feelings for all to see, like a totem of the heart. I often come back to this subject matter in my paintings because the memories of times like this are woven indelibly into my heart and brain (to paraphrase Paul Simon).”

 

Ben Crawford is a figurative painter. He mostly paints about his life, exploring the story telling possibilities of distorted memories and dreams. Surreal elements transform the landscapes he paints into somewhat mystical realms, bursting with colour and charged with mystery. Figures, architecture and landmarks drawn from his life imbue Ben’s paintings with a sense of narrative, anchoring his work tentatively to reality.
