New York artist, Ben Marlan takes us into his “Imaginary Landscapes”. All of his vistas are born out of his love of bright or saturated colors and simple, peaceful forms. Coming from bits of feelings recalled from landscapes that he has traveled to and sometimes creating them out of a need for harmony and balance in a space. Through that search for balance, Marlan is discovering the different ways to place a line, contour or a field of color, pushing these compositions in unusual ways gives them unique character. The trees, hills, sun and other features of the landscapes become living creatures, moving around, conversing and relating with each other, and the viewer. Take them in as friends and enjoy them. "Painting these landscapes is like writing a story of a place you were never at, but remember faintly."- Ben Marlan
