The Work of Erik Benson

Eric Benson's paintings are informed by fragments of urban landscape and culture that are found in the everyday. His process involves pouring acrylic paint onto sheets of glass, allowing them to dry, then peeling the dried shapes off and collaging them into larger compositions. I admire his attention to detail, shifts in visual focus, and his conveyance of both isolation and temporality. I particularly admire the playgrounds.
