Ben Fenske
Nude Sketch

2009

About

An academic drawing of a female figure, sitting atop a flat surface. Sitting on one leg, the other bent and outstretched. Fenske highlights the lines of the figure with a burnt orange color, and the illuminated stomach with white chalk. A truly classic piece. Artist Bio Ben Fenske (b. 1978) although a native of Minnesota, and has been working and living in Sag Harbor, New York and Florence, Italy for the last 7 years. An oil painter in the spirit of the 19th and 20th century impressionists, he often chooses informal and contemporary scenes with an implied narrative. His work, which features brash and suggestive brushstrokes, delights in light and color and is regularly exhibited in shows across the US. Fenske has been the subject of countless national articles, notably the American Artist Magazine which included him as one of the Best 25 Living Artists in 2012. Education: Russian Academy of Art Florence Academy of Art Studio of Joseph Paquet, Minnesota Bougie Studio, Minnesota. Awards: BP Portrait Award 2016 Exhibited Artist
