Established Brighton abstract artist Ben Fearnside launches solo exhibition of all-new work at Gallery 40,
for Brighton Fringe Festival.
Metal on Canvas is an alchemy of raw metals. Bronze, copper, iron, silver and gold, combine with shellacs, polishes, inks and washes in a rich light-responsive finish. Dark as thunder, light as a stained-glass window. Contained abstract geometry suggests planets, cityscapes, field patterns, rock-strata, the view through a microscope. Slow change over time and tipping-points.
PAINTING AUCTION FOR THE SUSSEX BEACON
During the exhibition, Ben Fearnside is donating one of his paintings to raise money for an important local health service.
Ben said, “Someone close to me lives with HIV and the Sussex Beacon helped her at a very dark time. The Beacon’s unique services are under threat and we hope our charity auction will help raise awareness and funds. My paintings are about light, which seems fitting for The Beacon.”
To place a bid in the Metal on Canvas art auction, come to Gallery 40 any time during exhibition opening-hours and write your bid in a sealed envelope. The envelopes will be opened and the winners announced on Saturday 13th at 6pm. Come along!
Ben’s mind is as mercurial as his materials: come and see a creative journey wrapped around the walls.
