Ben Crawford paints mostly about his life, exploring the storytelling 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.

Ben says of this work: “A group of figures are immersed in a wild landscape. Their attire and stance is out of place with their surroundings. I like this juxtaposition and I see it as a kind of metaphor for the relationship humans have with the natural world around them.”
