About "Garden of Eden"
I was inspired by artists such as Pierneef and tried to combine the feel of flat colours and the African forest.I chose the theme of Adam and Eve and Paradise and the genesis of gardening.I doodled for hours before finally getting to this idea of an ethnic version of the Garden of Eden.When I put pencil on paper what came forth was mainly a composition of ethnic huts("rondawels"),a river,a big tree-in this composition actually 'The Tree of Good and Evil'-the mountain and the sun.I believe it all stems from the fact that I have worked in so many beautiful gardens before,and I do love the earth!
About Ben van Eck
I'm inspired by colour, spaces, contrasts, in nature, in patterns and shapes and sizes. I enjoy the natural elements,the seasons and nature itself. I love sunrises and sunsets and wide open spaces,fields and the countryside. I want to tell the world that there is hope and love in abundance if we open our eyes and ears and hearts to receive it. I have been enjoying painting and drawing pictures even from before school and once got a hiding as a kid from my dad for drawing pictures on the kitchen wall tiles with a blue marker.
