Says Ben of this work: “I like the idea of a figure being absorbed into the environment it’s standing in.

When I’m exploring a landscape I often get the feeling of being lost in it or getting swallowed up in its verdancy. Like most people, I suppose, the natural world resonates with me at a very elemental level. There’s also a sense of promise and hope that comes from observing the landscape which is very therapeutic.”

 

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.
