ANTON BENZON (article first published : 2008-04-24)

The annual exhibition of paintings by respected South Coast landscape artist and gallery muse, Anton Benzon, is still up at the Anton Benzon @ Crouse Art Gallery KZN in Morningside.

The work of Anton Benzon is denoted by distinctive emotive landscapes. Working on canvas in oils using a palette knife, he captures various landscapes and studies of trees. His work boasts an extraordinary sense of light and a surprising palette of colours in impressionist-inspired textured paintings. He is interested in the visual relationship and spatial dialogue between the sky above and trees and flora below.

He is based in Ramsgate on the lower South Coast and works from his quaint sea-facing studio in a converted holiday cottage right on the beach. He works together with his partner, fellow landscape artist Diane Erasmus.

Crouse Art Gallery KZN is situated at 56 Adrain Road in Morningside. The gallery is open from Monday to Saturdays from 09h00 to 16h00 (09h00 to 12h00 on Saturdays) More information on 031 312 2315 or visit www.artdealers.co.za
