Erik Benson : Stacks

September 21, 2016 @ 10:00 am - October 21, 2016 @ 5:30 pm

Edward Tyler Nahem Fine Art is proud to present Stacks, a new body of work by painter Erik Benson. Each landscape portrays the hard edges of mid-century public housing projects, whose utopian ideals are interrupted by the temporal, shifting structures in the foreground: the artist’s still-life ‘stacks’. Benson states, “still life compositions within my landscape paintings are depictions of mundane found objects collaged together to create a kind of totem of the everyday. For example, a plastic owl from the hardware store intended to repel birds rests on a stump with a foam finger stuck on one of its dead limbs. These makeshift totems portray subplots within larger landscapes.”
