About

Painted en plein-air on a beach on the East End of Lond Island, a woman walks against the wind on a moonlit shore. She folds her arms to retain warmth while her hair and skirt trail behind in the wind. Quick brash brushstrokes connote a choppy bay. 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.
