About The Artwork

Taking its name from the Spanish for 'mermaid', this piece is a reflection on mythical tales of sirens and their allure for sailors at sea. Told over centuries, these tales have become part of modern terminology and although few may believe in their factual grounding, they continue to captivate and mesmerise many. My hope is to create pieces that will interest and inspire conversatian as well as be aesthetically captivating. Usually by partly concealing the narratives, I intend to give space for the viewer to find their own meaning within each work.

Ben Stephenson is a British artist currently living and working in Mexico. His primary medium is painting, although his practice is multidisciplinary and encompasses sculpture, photography and performative installations. Notions of Colonialism and Voyeurism are central themes throughout his work as he investigates the act of looking at/observing the world from a distance and the misinterpretations that entail. For this reason he has traveled from London to work in a different climate and culture with the intentions of absorbing new stimuli as well as reassessing pre-existing ideas of the exotic. Much of the work displayed here is derived from historical narratives, with source imagery in films and photographs being a primary stimulus. Ben has spent the past two years living and working between Colombia and Mexico. His most recent exhibitions include 'FAIN feria' in Monterrey, Mexico, 'Genesis in the Retort' at the Museo de la Ciudad in Queretaro, Mexico, and 'NADA' at Outsiders Gallery in Queretaro, Mexico. He was awarded 1st prize by the Mexican Embassy in London for a collaborative sculpture in the recent Camaradas exhibition at The Koppel Project Exchange in July 2021.
