Benjamin Warner: Abstract

2nd - 15th February 2018

Benjamin Warner: Abstract

Benjamin Warner is an artist renowned for his depictions of imposing coastal scenes, remote, inhabited and industrial, and spectacular urban landscapes. Painted at the beginning and end of the day in the half light of dawn and dusk, these works, reminiscent of Whistler, approach abstraction. Until now, however, Warner has remained on the threshold that stands between representation and abstraction; nevertheless, the gift of a number of unfinished panels painted by his art lecturer father (who had himself taken up abstract painting) has provided the springboard from which Warner felt able to explore his own ideas. Despite a number of the panels having little more than a colour ground or a touch of texture, they had a profound impact and gave Warner a starting point for his own creative journey, from figurative works, engrained in place, towards paintings that have been completely abstracted from their figurative roots.

We saw the first paintings created for this collection back in November and loved them. Now, with the collection complete, we are delighted to be able to confirm the opening date of the show, which is now open in London and Cornwall.

"I hope this new work still has the qualities that I strive for in my representational work of a refined palette, interesting paint surface and a overal timeless quality" - Benjamin Warner
