November 16 at 7:00pm until December 1 at 4:00pm
Newsagency Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of oil paintings by
Ben Cahill – Extraordinary Renditions.
The opening event is 7 pm Friday 16 November. The show will run till Saturday December 1.
Ben’s landscape paintings are hauntingly beautiful, his work explores personal themes through dramatic bush landscapes filled with struggling figures and adored animals. Ben tells us beautiful dark stories using stoic tree trunks in tenuous compositions and layers of rich, atmospheric colour. They are not fantasies but fictions or dreamscapes naturally rendered. His influences include traditional Chinese painting, Australian landscape painter Hans Heysen, and the art of post Renaissance Mannerism.
Ben is showing 20 oil paintings on canvas and wood, plus acrylic and ink work on paper.
