An original oil painting on linen. This painting is part of a series created for his exhibition, 'Genesis in the Retort' which explores common archetypes and narratives that attempt to explain the human condition. Who are we? Where does the ego come from and where does it reside? Is there an afterlife beyond death of the physical body? He has been investigating the archetypes prevalent across many indigenous cultures, as well as contemporary mythology, and how these most often relate to a desire to explain our animal needs and the natural world around us. This painting is exploring the alchemical process, origins and Materia Prima. The title is taken from Tarot and the two intertwining plants are Philodendron which translates from Ancient Greek as ‘Love Tree’.

Ben Stephenson is a British artist currently living and working in Mexico. His primary medium is painting, although his practice is multidisciplinary and encompasses sculpture, photography and performative installations. Notions of Colonialism and Voyeurism are central themes throughout his work as he investigates the act of looking at/observing the world from a distance and the misinterpretations that entail. For this reason he has traveled from London to work in a different climate and culture with the intentions of absorbing new stimuli as well as reassessing pre-existing ideas of the exotic. Much of the work displayed here is derived from historical narratives, with source imagery in films and photographs being a primary stimulus. Ben has spent the past two years living and working between Colombia and Mexico. His most recent exhibitions include 'FAIN feria' in Monterrey, Mexico, 'Genesis in the Retort' at the Museo de la Ciudad in Queretaro, Mexico, and 'NADA' at Outsiders Gallery in Queretaro, Mexico. He was awarded 1st prize by the Mexican Embassy in London for a collaborative sculpture in the recent Camaradas exhibition at The Koppel Project Exchange in July 2021.
