Jenkins Johnson Gallery is presenting a trio of thought-provoking artists in Evolving Visions. Ben Aronson, Scott Fraser, and Julian Opie fuse their visions of the world through contemporary landscapes, still life, and portraiture.
Ben Aronson’s realism is in his work as he creates city landscapes that depict everything from drizzly sidewalks to glimmering window screens on cars. His colour palette and brush technique skills leave a quality that can be confused with photography. Aronson, a member of the National Academy, has been represented by Jenkins Johnson since 2001 and his awards include National Academy of Arts and Letters in 2006, the Pleissner Memorial Award for Painting at the National Academy of Design in 1992.
Scott Fraser is one of America’s leading modern realist still life painters who has had his work featured in major exhibitions including at Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; the De Young Museum in San Francisco; the Denver Art Museum; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa.
Julian Opie is one of the UK’s finest artists who uses his skill to illustrate, sketch, paint or incorporate graphics through computer software. His work is shown in The Tate Gallery, London, and the Museum of Modern Art. His work has been radically sold in the past through means such as catalogues and he is a sole representative of Western Art.
