Works private viewBenjamin's part of the show comprised 56 paintings of London and 5 portraits. Almost all were painted directly from life but there were also a couple of much larger studio paintings that were developed from plein air studies. According to Benjamin, "working from life is my modus operandi—I love the immediacy, the time pressure, and the liveliness of the result—but I also enjoyed creating the large studio paintings. They're not just straightforward enlargements; they're more like an exploration of how a more complex layering of paint can help evoke the light and atmosphere of the moments I originally captured painting outdoors".

The exhibition catalogue is online and hard copies are available on request.
