Jason Benjamin is a young Australian painter whose career as an artist began in the US after studies at the Pratt Institute in New York. Since then, from his Sydney base, he has exhibited widely throughout Australia and has been a regular contributor to the Archibald Prize. His international career begins this year with and exhibition in Rome. Benjamin's subjects are drawn from those around him and the environment in which he dwells. While his paintings are loaded with atmousphere and are evocative of the emotions felt in the presence of his subjects, the paintings conform to long-held traditions in western art. They are - in the final instance - landscapes, still-lifes and portraits. These are moody paintings, aptly titles and certain to draw empathetic responces from those who view them.
