Steve Bentley 2021Introduction to the exhibition

This collection of paintings is mostly recent one’s which I have framed myself. Though I don’t limit my work to landscape, they represent inspiration from my local surroundings. In that sense I hope the results speak for themselves.
Painting for me is an ongoing practice as I attempt to develop the way I work. Competing with my own limitations, I find enjoyment in the challenge.

Introduction to the artist

I was born in Oldham Lancashire and attended Derker Secondary Modern School which was quite close to where I lived.
Looking back, it was a rough time and didn’t really inspire me with an interest in learning or any future that was on offer there. Fortunately, I was able to leave at the age of 13yrs after qualifying for Oldham Art School where I studied for five years. The emphasis there was on Graphic Art or ‘Advertisement Design’ as it was called then.
I then worked for a Litho Printers in Oldham for a while before attending Ashton Polytechnic doing Pre-Diploma studies in Art after which I moved to Sunderland to do Diploma studies at the Art College there.
After qualifying; (Diploma in Art & Design, as it was then), I did screen printing for a few years before moving to Mossley, a region close to my original roots in Oldham. I then became self-employed as an artist mainly painting water colours.
Now I work in oils painting landscapes, abstracts and people.
