Ben Fenske
Girl, Morning

2020

US$16,500

About

A stunning medium-sized portrait of a woman getting dressed in front of an open window. Glass window panes opened wide, allowing in bright natural light and lush greens of the outdoors. The figure wears a tight button-up bodice, where her hands rest, and a blue a-line skirt. A chair is filled with clothes, perhaps laundry, or perhaps outfits that didn't make-the-cut. Light shimmers and vibrates across the room, her body casts shadows below her bare feet. The background is abstracted with loose brushstrokes. Ben Fenske (b. 1978) although a native of Minnesota, and has been working and living in Sag Harbor, New York and Florence, Italy for the last 12 years. An oil painter in the spirit of the 19th and 20th century impressionists, he often chooses informal and contemporary scenes with an implied narrative. His work, which features brash and suggestive brushstrokes, delights in light and color and is regularly exhibited in shows across the US. Fenske has been the subject of countless national articles, most notably the American Artist Magazine which included him as one of the Best 25 Living Artists in 2012.
