Ben Jamie - Realm

Wed-Sat: 11-6pm

Castor is pleased to present Ben Jamie’s Realm, his forth solo exhibition with the gallery.

In this new series of paintings, Jamie explores the organic relationship between the human body and the natural world, inspired in part by a recent trip to the raw and unpredictable landscapes of Iceland. The paintings, much like the volcanic landscapes which inspired them, are simultaneously beautiful and unsettling, reflecting the duality of nature as both a nurturing and destructive force.

Jamie has long been preoccupied by the Hero’s Journey as a narrative arc, exploring the themes of transformation, chaos and redemption. The nine paintings on show continue this exploration, which is here considered through three distinct yet related expressions; landscape, figurative and the figure as landscape.
