Has never been framed. Gary Benfield, British (1965 - ) Gary Benfield was born December 6th, 1965 in Birmingham, England. He studied art at Stourbridge College of Art (1982 - 1984) & at Wrexham College of Art (1984 - 1986). in 1986, Benfield became a professional freelance illustrator. After leaving the academic world he set up his own studio near London & concentrated on drawing & painting figures. Within a few years, his work was being collected throughout Europe & his reputation had become firmly established. Benfield has a natural talent for depicting things as seen. His work is spontaneous & reflected by his drawn lines & dashes of color. The figures dissolve in & out of their backgrounds & move across the canvas. He paints rapidly & discards most of his paintings & drawings, keeping only those he feels are perfected in their conception rather than overwork those that are not correct. His paintings represent a discrete world of objects which combine figures, mythology, nature, & still life. Despite the casual appearance of his compositions, all imagery is highly organized, & after long observations one finds the hidden symmetry & beauty beneath the layers of finery. The background of his paintings is soft, reminiscent of Leonardo de Vinci's sketches & sepia tones, most of it defined only with pencil & a slight highlight of color. For Benfield, the world around him is a continuous sequence of fortuitous events. Objects & figures intertwine in his mind, they dance, they fuse & one adopts the color & life of another. We are drawn into an intimate world of his imagery, where sensuality & delight in life's form are combined in a flight of frolic & fantasy. Benfield is considered to be one of the most renowned contemporary artists in the art world today. His work is collected by art collectors worldwide.
