BEN JAMIE

The paintings of Ben Jamie explore the boundaries between the grotesque and the saccharine and seek to turn the mundane into the unusual. Inspiration comes from many sources be it studio detritus, fly-tipping, transhumanism or fast food. Whilst based somewhere in reality, the paintings are fairly undisturbed by the real world.  This allows Jamie to create notional, metamorphic spaces, and fabricate an idealised past or future, which can be populated with allegorical figures and objects.
