Artist Statement: In this painting I wanted to capture something of the relationship and transitions which occur between chaos and order. Where the imagination is set with the task to interpret information in a meaningful, subjective way or to allow this visual information to remain chaotic. Both the orderly and chaotic sit within the same spectrum and the viewer is invited to travel across the surface of the painting from close and afar and to interpret the painting in their own way.
Medium: Mixed media on paper
Dimensions: 162 h x 146 w cm
CHG Director's Statement: Ben Kenning's new paintings complimented the culture, busyness, frenetic activity and colours so much a part of India! Also he was influenced by the disintegration of the cities infrastructure through the passage of time and the effects of nature. He observed the half stage of ruin versus new structures rising. This phenomena is reflected in some of the exhibition workings. Do you regard your Indian experience a game changer? Ben said it was the most consistent body of work he'd produced for a long time. He reinforced the strength, style and alternate subject matter to respond to was a positive development as opposed to working from the imagination alone. The influence of being in and experiencing India was important and the universal theme for the show. He feels he has developed a mastery and control over his art process which was exhilarating.
