About the Work

Clouds of gold merge with passages of sapphire, lime and red-orange in this lively painting by Ben Woollfitt. In his paintings, Woolfitt applies layers of acrylic over a period of time, even months, to create a dynamic, flowing impasto. Each painting is a narrative of the process of its creation, the experience of applying paint – how it moves, its texture, quantity. Woolfitt’s canvases are “at once inviting and intimidating, awesome and unsettling,” wrote New York art critic Donald Kuspit in Therapeutic Abstraction. This essay appears in the 2018 catalogue "Ben Woolfitt, Paintings."
