Meet Ben Payne...

Meet Ben Payne...

There's been a bit of a buzz at our Weybridge gallery today with the arrival of two beautiful originals by Ben Payne.

Many great painters have been classically trained, but there is also a noble tradition of the self-taught artist coming from a different background entirely: their 'other life' gives a different perspective to the art.

While art has always been an enormous part of Payne's life (particularly his artist mother), Ben studied in Psychology, working with Autistic Children as a Behavioural Therapist.


This manifests itself in Ben's art as a purity and innocence that has been a joy to behold when photographing these originals. Blending both figurative and abstract qualities, these simple, striking pieces speak of great things to come!

A thoughtful and quietly spoken artist, Scott Bauer’s polite manner is the perfect reflection of a series of accomplished original acrylic works with pristine painted stripes as their signature structure. A genre named by the artist as linear formalism, the term conjures thoughts of complex algebraic formulas, a mindset far away from the freedom of creative imagination. Using fragments of memory along with his perception of the world, the artist distills light and colour into stunningly rendered stripes. Waved, faded and pure, the outcome are pieces both calmly meditative and excitingly vivid. Wyecliffe Galleries are privileged to share an insight in to the mind of this emerging artist.
