'The Myth of the Submarine' by Ben Cockett, Oil on Canvas, 2017

$7,739.49

About

‘The Myth Of The Submarine,’ is a painting based on the distant memory of the artist, Ben Cockett, spotting a fast moving periscope, presumably from a military submarine, from the beach at Dungeness, Kent. He explores the event in the language of post- war abstract painting with particular reference to Jackson Pollock and Franz Klein; the momentum of the reflection developing into a homage to the profound loss of life, suffered by submariners during the war years. Presented in a contemporary submerged and ebonised hardwood frame. About the artist: Ben Cockett is an artist living and working in Vauxhall, South Central London, making semi-abstract paintings in oil on linen. He completed his Meister-schuhler at Dusseldorf Academy in 1996 under professor Janis Kounellis, having been awarded the D.A.A.D. Stipendium for two years as well as a B.A Honours from The Slade School of Art, London in 1991. In 1993 he had his first solo exhibition at Galerie Weber; Munster, Germany and on his return to the U.K. was selected to exhibit two paintings in ‘Fraternise,’ at Beaconsfield Gallery; Vauxhall in 2011, alongside the leading British artists of his generation. His vividly coloured paintings celebrate personal memories and dreams through deeply considered painterly gestures, referencing the legacy of post war painting from Pollock to Johns to Richter.
