Stephen Benwell (b1953) completed his Masters of Fine Art at Monash University in 2005 but has exhibited regularly since 1995 in Australia and overseas. Benwell was, for many years, seen as a ceramicist, but today definition only by medium seems redundant and Benwell's small-scale ceramic sculptural forms, drawings and small paintings sit firmly in contemporary art practice. His recent figurative sculptures borrowed heavily from classical Greek art are less about beauty and more about imbuing the clay forms and colours with an individual's psychological and physiological imperfections that he finds beauty in.
