Ben Fenske
Floral Sheets

$20,500

About

An oil painting of a female nude. A nude figure lies on her back on a bed. Colorful textiles surround her. The sheet she lies on is white with green flowers and yellow spots. Her legs are outstretched, on bending down naturally towards the floor. Her figure is outlined and highlighted. This is one of the most important paintings from "The Bea Nudes" series 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.
