Jason Benjamin: Everyone Is Here

11 Oct 2014 - 30 Nov 2014

Considered one of Australia’s most talented landscape painters, Jason Benjamin has concentrated his energies and talent into shaping a pared back vision of light and space around landscape sites.

Curated by Gavin Wilson, the paintings and drawings featured in Everyone is Here were a distillation of deep-felt encounters around particular landscape sites, where the artist has concentrated his energies and talent on shaping a pared-back vision of light and space.

This series of work developed following lengthy field trips to the austere expanse of the Hay Plain and the Monaro regions of New South Wales and revealed the artists re-affirmination of a landscape tradition that lies at the heart of the Australian experience.

Everyone is Here highlighted the artist’s disciplined scrutiny of topography, vegetation, climate and environmental concerns.
