Studio Voltaire opens Benjamin Senior exhibition

Studio Voltaire presents Benjamin Senior an exhibition on view 12 October–14 December 2013.

For his first solo exhibition in a London public gallery, Benjamin Senior will present a new body of paintings. Senior’s figurative paintings typically depict women engaged in sport or exercise. Recent works have featured a formal play of rhythms, false symmetries and colour relationships. This sense of play continues within the frame of the picture as athletic figures and the patterned interiors or landscapes they occupy fuse into one with the flat surface of the painting. There is a voyeuristic aspect to Senior’s work as viewers become self-consciously aware of the action of their own gaze.

Benjamin Senior (b 1982, UK) is based in London and graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2010. He has had solo exhibitions at James Fuentes LLC, New York (2013), BolteLang, Zurich (2012) and Jerwood Project Space, London (2006).
