Ben Fenske
Clouds Over Secret Beach

2020

$33,000

About

A large scale, horizontally oriented oil painting of the bay in Sag Harbor. Positioned on the shore of a quiet isolated beach, called "Secret Beach", Fenske captures a cloud filled sky above a vista of open waters and distant shorelines. A couple sailboats rest within the bay, sails down, masts up. Hues of blue, turquoise, indigo and violet make up the majority of the canvas, highlighted by accents of yellows and creams. Urgent, loose brushstrokes connote impressionism, and bring to mind modern masters like Van Gogh. The painting is framed in a white wooden floating frame. Painting dimensions: 39.5 x 55.11 inches Framed dimensions: 45.5 x 61.25 inches Framed in a handmade italian frame, natural wood and a gold trim. BIOGRAPHY 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.
