165 x 250 cm
The Outsider Art of Bill Bensley, 30 September - 21 November 2021 at RCB Galleria, River City Bangkok
Environmentalism – The World from a Gardener’s Perspective: While his passion for art has only recently been realized, Bill is a lifelong conservationist who first trained as a landscape architect before becoming an architect and interior designer. He is committed to conservation and protection of the environment and this shows in his work. One hundred percent of proceeds from his artwork is donated to the conservation efforts of Wildlife Alliance and the good work of the Shinta Mani Foundation. Environmentalism is truly the core of what Bill does, and who he is. In this chapter, figures are painted enlaced with nature, working as one with it rather than living separate from the natural world – something Bill lives by. Many of the paintings teach a lesson about the environment, with names such as “The Greatest Danger to our Future is Apathy” a quote by Jane Goodall, or “If we take care of nature, nature will take care of us” by David Attenborough – two great heroes of Bills.
