About

“Evening Cloud” (2019, Oil on linen, 35.43 x 49.21 inches). An oil painting, created en plein air in Tuscany. Rolling hills illuminated and shadowed by the natural light of a clouded sky. The foreground depicts green plowed land encompassed in shadow cast from a large cloud, directly above, unseen to the viewer. Beyond, the earth is enfolded in bright natural light. Painting dimensions: 35.5 x 49.25 inches Framed dimensions: 41.5 x 55.25 x 3 inches Framed in a custom, handmade, italian, gold-leaf wood frame. 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 12 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, most notably the American Artist Magazine which included him as one of the Best 25 Living Artists in 2012.
