Jaco Benade has always sought to explore the intersection between
Classical and Contemporary art. He has explored classical techniques and ability with modern composition and subject matter both in his portraiture and
montage work .
The result is often a type of disjointed nostalgia or melancholy, a
recurrent theme in his work. Benade ventures into the
shadows of life - although he always try to capture it with restraint - some
obscurity leaves something for the imagination.
