June 2021 Feature Artists – ‘bendee’

Iluka Emporium is excited to be introducing our June artists – bendee – a collaboration of work titled Figurative Abstraction series. You can meet the artists on Saturday 12th June from 11.30 to 1pm.

“benjamin (ben) mcdouall and djuana (dee) leiselle joined in collaboration in 2019 to create ‘bendee productions’
working with mixed medium they have produced and developed the ‘figurative abstraction series 1’
ben is a multidisciplinary artist combing audio, visual and text
dee is a performance and visual artist with a background in dance and shamanic ritual
our work features heavily in figurative abstraction, reflecting our interest in expressive and innovative mediums and painting techniques and the figure as a symbol of free humanity
our work is created in the moment often capturing elements from the natural environment around us including, ochres, earth, sand, salt, dyes, beeswax, charcoal, natural fibres as well as ink, graphite powder, pvc, plaster and synthetic polymer paint
bendee are representatives of humanity at the dawn of the twenty-first century
in our spare time bendee also likes to solve the mysteries of time and space and other fun puzzles
we hope you enjoy the show!”
