This moving collection of works drift between memory, fantasy and realism as Ben explores notions of love, marriage, and whimsical sentiment. Originally hailing from Ireland, Ben and his family now reside in the stunning Gold Coast Hinterland where he creates his works in a magical bush studio.
Originally hailing from Cork, Ireland, 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.
