Jason Benjamin resists the dominance of ideas in contemporary art – he prefers to champion art as experience. Benjamin’s exquisitely rendered oil paintings, with their careful distillation flight and space, invite contemplation and emotional engagement. Submitting to simplicity has liberated Benjamin and lead to a new found serenity, for both the artist and his paintings. His work has met wide critical acclaim, and is represented in numerous publications and private collections within Australia, including the National Gallery of Australia, The National Portrait Gallery, Artbank and many regional galleries around Australia. Benjamin has won numerous prizes and has recently been a finalist in the prestigious Archibald and Moran prizes. He exhibits extensively throughout Australia, and in London Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Rome and New York.
In Jason Benjamin’s exquisite landscapes sweeping country plains, broad skies and panoramic beaches are imbued with hope and renewal. Memory and experience of particular locations ignites each new body of work but Benjamin’s paintings are rarely topographically precise and, together with their thought-provoking titles, invite the viewer’s personal associations.
A minimalist spirit has recently crept into Benjamin’s painting inspired by his love for the pared back simplicity of Canadian-born painter Agnes Martin, the calligraphic brushwork of Chinese landscape traditions and the shimmering beauty of music by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. Committed to stripping away all unnecessary elements from his work, Benjamin’s palette has become more restricted and his subjects more spartan.
Benjamin is a regular finalist in the Archibald and Moran prizes. He is represented in numerous public and private collections within Australia and exhibits extensively nationally and internationally.
