Renowned artist Jason Benjamin describes his art as experiential. Indeed, stripped back then intensified, his atmospheric landscapes are less about preciness and more a vehicle for emotional contemplation. Like taking a walk to turn over an idea, his vistas contain a private gravitas that is reaffirmed by their titles. 

In ‘You can’t take it back’, the last hours of day bear untold significance. Burning with a distant amber, this work is a feat of composition, depth and intrigue. What can’t one take back?

Benjamin is represented in numerous public collections, including at the National Gallery of Victoria and the National Gallery of Australia, as well as notable regional and corporate collections. He is multi-time finalist in the Wynne, Archibald and Doug Moran prizes and in 2005, won the Archibald’s Packing Room Prize. For collectors of prints, and landscape and contemporary art, Benjamin is a thrilling find.
