Niagara Galleries presents Stephen Benwell, Roman holiday: paintings, statues, vases at Sydney Contemporary 2015, along with a stockroom of works by Julia Ciccarone, Steven Rendall and Bradd Westmoreland.
Niagara Galleries is pleased to be presenting new work by the distinguished ceramicist and painter, Stephen Benwell. In 2013, Benwell was celebrated at Heide Museum of Modern Art in a comprehensive exhibition titled Stephen Benwell: Beauty, Anarchy, Desire – A Retrospective. Concerned with the transience of ordinary, everyday beauty, works presented for the 2015 Sydney Art Fair will include his signature revival of classical forms: the ceramic vessel, the figurine. As ever, these will be intimate works, with painterly surfaces, that celebrate colour, line and figuration in an enticingly tactile form.
