Mixed media original artwork created by Benjamin Phillips on handmade Museum standard panel, wood surface which is sustainably sourced and PEFC and FSC certified and an aluminium subframe that will not react to changes in humidity or temperature creating a warp free panel with lasting longevity. This also means the edges of the piece are finished in a beautiful, solid, yet lightweight brushed aluminium which is visible to a depth of 4cm. “Ready to Hang.” In the captivating artwork titled "Seduction of Attention" by Benjamin Phillips, a profound exploration of urban intricacies and artistic resilience unfolds. The square canvas transforms into an intimate stage, hosting a meticulous fusion of traditional paint techniques and fragments sourced from the city's streets. Within this confined space, layers of distressed street posters and remnants of urban life converge to create a textured narrative that eloquently symbolizes the city's rich history. "Seduction of Attention" captures viewers' focus with a deliberate focal point, offering a concentrated glimpse into the pulsating energy of the urban environment. Yellow shades dominate the carefully chosen color palette, infusing the composition with an atmosphere that radiates moments of vibrancy and allure. This artwork, characterized by its textured topography and nuanced storytelling, stands as a testament to artistic ingenuity. It initiates a visual dialogue, inviting viewers to interpret its meanings and actively participate in the ongoing discourse surrounding urban survival. The painting is uniquely signed on the back in Benjamin's now trademark signature in plaster and will be delivered directly from the studio extremely well packaged, insured and protected. Hanging/installation hardware fitted. Artwork is UV protected with a high quality archival semi-gloss varnish. A signed Certificate of Authenticity will be provided.

Benjamin Phillips, as an artist deeply immersed in the contemporary urban landscape, engages in a unique form of urban archaeology through the incorporation of street posters and found fragments into his work. These elements, culled directly from the bustling streets of London, serve as artifacts that carry the imprints of the city's dynamic and ever-evolving cultural and social tapestry. In the intricate layers of Benjamins compositions, the inclusion of street posters, flyers, and other urban ephemera functions akin to an archaeological dig within the city's bustling thoroughfares. Each piece becomes a tangible link to the daily life, events, and cultural expressions of a specific moment in time. The posters, often weathered and worn, bear the marks of exposure to the elements, offering a glimpse into the transitory nature of urban communication and expression. This aspect of his artistic practice transforms the creative process into an exploration of the city's collective consciousness. The found fragments become like archaeological relics, preserving snippets of public dialogue, cultural happenings, and the visual language of the streets. By repurposing these fragments, he not only breathes new life into discarded materials but also provides a means to decode the layers of urban history embedded within them. Much like an urban archaeologist unearthing remnants of civilizations past, Benjamin excavates and repurposes these fragments, elevating them from the transient nature of street life to enduring pieces of contemporary art. The juxtaposition of these elements in his work speaks to the complexity of the urban environment, acting as a visual commentary on the constant flux and transformation inherent in city living. Through this lens of urban archaeology, he captures and encapsulates the essence of the city's vibrant, multifaceted identity in his compelling and thought-provoking compositions. Benjamin Phillips lives and works in London, England and his work is exhibited and collected worldwide.
