“Ben’s work deals intelligently with the profusion of images that we are bombarded with, from facebook memes to youtube videos, from surrealist paintings to old masters.

He is utterly immersed in the variety of visual media that artists are subject to, and treat as their subjects.

The fact that he makes videos, performances, and photoshopped images (the kind that might go viral) and paints using traditional techniques, speaks to the great fuelling of the physical by the digital.

In Ben’s art the boundaries dissolve to create exciting new hybrids. His work is funny, sometimes profane, raw, and relevant.

There is a touch of Ryan Trecartin’s hyperactivity with some of the humour of an artist like Kippenberger, as well as an abiding desire to explore the possibilities of paint.”
