"Try Some" by Ben Steele

In Try Some, Ben Steele’s low culture―high culture homage, the quintessentially American gumball machine is front and center in a controlled museum environment filled with graceful figures by Henri Matisse, including the iconic Dance (I) and The Pink Nude. The hatch door covering the candy exit on the machine beckons “Try Some”. And “try some” is part of Steele’s message: try some of all life has to offer. Art is for enjoyment and just like a handful of candy, it can give you great pleasure and satisfaction.

The Masterwork™ canvas edition at 32" x 40" makes an impactful cultural statement with a big wink, and comes in an edition of only 25! Try Some is also available in a smaller 18” x 22 1/2” signed and numbered paper edition for those with great taste yet slightly less space for such a beautiful work of art.

About Ben Steele

Steele was born in 1977 in Kennewick, WA. He graduated from University of Utah in 2002 with a BFA in painting and drawing, continuing his education at the Helper Workshops under the instruction of David Dornan and Paul Davis. The summer workshops led to a multi-year internship with Dornan and Steele relocated to Helper where he has been living and working as an artist ever since.

Artist Statement
Steele considers himself to often be on the outside of the art world looking in. Rather than fitting any specific movement, he's best described as an Art Chameleon, using his work to comment on the history of art as a whole. To do so, he incorporates many different processes of painting and isn't tied down by any one style. 

With an education built upon classical training, however, he enjoys utilizing the techniques and processes of the old masters with a contemporary sensibility. What results is a paradoxical reverence for art with playful and sometimes acidic commentary.
