$24,000

About

An oil painting of the bay at Sunset. A sandy foreground meets a pale green sea, reflecting the white overcast sky above. The heavy grey sky hazes the sun, into a faint orange spot, reflecting softly a string of light across the water. A diagonal of poles jut out of the water, arranged to catch fish for the local baymen. A distant horizon is depicted with simple lines of purple. Framed in a handmade gold-leaf italian frame. Unframed dimensions: 39.37 x 47.25 inches 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.
