Artist Ben John studied Fine Art at Falmouth Art College. He continues to work from his studio in Cambridge, creating oil paintings on canvas and panel. Over the last twenty years John has exhibited paintings in Cambridge along with exhibitions in London, Yorkshire and USA.


Painting for me is as much about the space around an object as the object itself.
 

Exploring the distortion and fragmentation of an object, the eye can be misled by the shapes and shadows around it. In the momentary coming together of what exists and what does not exist, John creates a pictorial story of fragmented and disjointed happenings.
