Jason Benjamin

The art of Jason Benjamin has had a meteoric rise over the past three years, with major exhibitions in Australia and overseas. Born in Melbourne and now based in Sydney, Benjamin has studied at Pratt Institute, New York, and his work has taken him around the world, exhibiting in Tokyo, Hong Kong, London and New York. In 2002 Benjamin participated in Ken McGregor’s William Creek and Beyond expedition to Lake Eyre. This hugely successful project included nine other prominent Australian artists and resulted in a book, documentary film and touring exhibition.

Benjamin describes his world in identifiable, realistic terms – one immediately feels comfortable. His landscapes are portrayed in half-light, veiled by glazes that soften edges and impart a Caravaggioesque sense of chiaroscuro. Brush marks have been humbly subjugated to the skilful rendering of his subject’s form.

Major collections include Art Bank, National Portrait Gallery Canberra, Maquarie Bank, Ballarat Art Gallery, along with numerous significant private collections.
