Circle Contemporary Gallery is delighted to open Meditations, a unique solo exhibition featuring new works by Cornwall-based artist Ben Allen.
Meditations will commence with opening night drinks between 6-8pm on Thursday 15th June with Ben Allen at Circle Contemporary Gallery and the exhibtion will continue until the 29th July.
Ben Allen is known for his distinctive Pop paintings. Using complex collage techniques, his pieces create a dynamic mash-up of popular culture, which work to critique the banal and the mundane, challenge mainstream media values and inspire a sense of freedom.
In Meditations, Allen uses his well-regarded techniques across a number of paintings to exercise his dynamic thought process and this new venture as an artist.
We are particularly excited to welcome Meditations to Circle Contemporary’s Upper Gallery space. There is an innate connection between the visual language of the Gallery’s conceptual displays and Allen’s work in Meditations, both techniques capture an emotion rather than a reality; a demonstration of art as a perfect vehicle for the general artistic quest to convey sentiment.
