(British born 1982) Benjamin Senior’s figurative paintings typically depict women engaged in sport or exercise. Artworks 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.
