Michael Reid Gallery - Jason Benjamin - Shelter







From Robin Gibson to Jason  Benjamin's show and you couldn't find a more different crowd if you tried ... the seriously suited!

There's not a lot of fun in these works... they are serious paintings pushing Benjamin's trademark spookiness. There's a loneliness and desperation in these paintings which are a little like a long late night drive searching for a place to rest...

Michael rarely has openings, he should do more... while it's a hassle it does bring life into the gallery and gets people talking about the show.

Michael Reid - Elizabeth Bay
