Benjamin Jensen and Russell Reed present an exhibition at the Lewis Elton Gallery.

Benjamin Jensen is interested in the theme of psycho-geography, taking a place or setting and exploring how people, animals, architecture can fit into that environment. This makes for interesting if not edgy compositions as the nature of terrain is turned on its head. Anything and anyone can fade in and out of existence like memories with the passing of time. Patterns and colours push and shove, vying for attention, each deserving within a rich surreal narrative that goes beyond answering any deep questions of the human condition and ultimately embraces the abstraction and absurdity.

Russell Reed studied architecture and has carried that and his back ground in graffiti with him into his approach to painting and graphics. Bold colour schemes compliment each other as he breaks down conventional structure of buildings and abstracts the reality of the environment. More recently his work has been reaching out beyond the constraints of the 2D world of painting and literally becoming 3D sculpture on top of the canvass.
