Ben Reeves
A Boat Made of Ocean

Ben Reeves’ painting practice is an intense, personal account of perception. Specifically, it documents painting as a way to explore and understand the world. Using branches, smoke, gates and other visual barriers to blur boundaries between perception and experience, the works in this exhibition grapple with the thresholds of tenuous space. These explorations are heightened not only through composition, but also through Reeves’ lucid and varied use of paint application. A Boat Made of Ocean comprises a set of self-conscious explorations that reveal the artist's interest in worlds that are both real and imagined – fictional worlds drawn from real memories.
Ben Reeves’ work has been included in such significant exhibitions as The Painting Project: A Snapshot of Painting in Canada, Galerie de l’UQAM, Montreal, 2013; Shifting Space, Museum of Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, Chongqing, 2005; and For the Record: Drawing Contemporary Life, Vancouver Art Gallery, 2003. Reeves’ works are held in numerous collections including Montreal Museum of Fine Arts; Museum London, ON; National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Surrey Art Gallery, BC; and Vancouver Art Gallery. Reeves received a BFA from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, and an MA from Chelsea College of Art and Design, London. He resides in Tsawwassen, BC, and is Associate Professor in the Audain Faculty of Art and the Jake Kerr Faculty of Graduate Studies at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Vancouver, where for over 15 years he has engaged with generations of emerging painters.
