“I create art to gain a sense of permanence in an impermanent world. The best compliment I could receive from others is that my work enriches their life in some way.”  - Ben Steele

“I’ve never referenced J. M. W. Turner before, but have always wanted to because I’m such a fan of his use of color and the way he masterfully abstracted dynamic scenes into beautiful messes of shape and vibrancy. His work is a perfect foil for adding realism back in.”  - Ben Steele

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Ben Steele Arden Gallery

With an education built upon classical training, Ben Steele enjoys utilizing the processes of the old masters with a contemporary sensibility, never staying in one place for too long. The result is a wide-ranging body of work, not always still life, portraiture, or landscape...but often somewhere in between. His melding of art history and pop culture references with a classic glaze and scumble technique keeps his ever-changing process current, fresh, and exciting.
