A Second Chance by Ben Davies Jenkins


Ben Davies-Jenkins

1997-2002 Fine Art MA at The University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh College of Art, achieving 2:1 with distinction in Art History.
2007 PGDE in Art and Design at the University of Edinburgh

Ben Davies-Jenkins says: "The subject of my work is the human figure, often, although not always, isolated. I tend to avoid painting images with a direct narrative content. I am interested, rather, in the borderlines that humans occupy between the physical and the cerebral and the spiritual. My work increasingly seeks a direct empathetic response from the viewer and is concerned with the beautiful, tragic vulnerability of the human condition.

While my paintings are exclusively in oils, my drawings are predominantly executed in charcoal or graphite, often combined with ink or acrylic on board canvas, paper or glass."
