Water Sees Sky: Paintings by Benjamin Terrell

Benjamin Terrell was raised in Portland, OR and Memphis, TN and studied painting at The Art Institute of Chicago. His other passion being music, he moved to Eugene to run and eventually own CD/Game Exchange. After 15 years of living in Eugene, he bought a house with a wood shop turned art studio near the McKenzie River and found his true home.

This new series of paintings explore the expansiveness of sky as intensified in reflected water. Inspired by a recent trip to Japan, the artist finds poetic similarity to his own home along the McKenzie river. The artist has said, "In between water and sky, a new reflection appears of a vast and vulnerable fabric which is man in his floating world."
