About

An oil painting of Ben Fenske's dining room table, and all the items he savors in his life, living in Tuscany, Italy. Within this large-scale still-life painting, we see items such as, meats; steak and sausages; a yellow teapot; wine bottle, a glass of wine, a sprig of fresh rosemary, a bowl of clementines, a bag of potatoes, a silver espresso maker, a bottle of water, a beaker of olive oil, a wine key, and various utensils; a complex composition that excites the eye as it gazes from item to item. Framed in a handmade, Italian, gold leaf frame. Unframed dimensions: 47.25 x 78.75 inches Framed dimensions: 53.25 x 84.75 x 2.75 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.
