Gary Benfield Artist Statement

I cannot remember a time without drawing. It was natural for me as a child to use both my hands when painting, this ambidexterity has remained with me in my adult life as an artist. I love the beauty of the line and I use these skills to create and transform inert materials into images of beauty and romance.

There are aspects of our lives, our existence and experience which remain as a constant, not subject to historical variation. We fall in love, have children and experience a whole gamut of emotions as humans always have; we have also sought to express these fundamental experiences in aesthetic manner, through painting and poetry. As an artist, it is this imaginative role in transforming materials, paint graphite and charcoal to create this aesthetic dimension which I love.

About Gary Benfield

Gary has been living and working in Ireland for several years now and all recent editions on canvas have been printed and hand embellished from with in his studio, which looks out over the waters of the Kenmore River across to the Beara Peninsula.

The hand-embellishment of prints on canvas involves the subtle addition of several layers of transparent textures and paint to bring the image to life. The final touch is the careful and delicate application of gold leaf to highlight the beautiful intricate details.

These prints are lovingly hand worked to the highest standard and only then are they ready to be signed by the artist.
