About Ben


My current artwork is inspired by the moving image. The constant stream of visual stimulation provided by film, television and digital media serves as my subject. The works I create are records of my capacity to perceive such stimulus, a practice of receiving and understanding sensory information in a continuous state of change. I seek to discover and describe hidden aspects of the moving image, building layers of visual information as time and narrative unfold. I search not for stillness, but rather the presence of tranquility amidst the mess.

Duh! Went to his web site and found out what I wanted to know. I really would like to see his work up close. Perhaps sometime soon ...

I would like to know more about the medium used, size of work, etc. It's very beautiful.

Interesting tension achieved through the contrast of the 2-d "scratched" effect and the dense 3-d cloud effect. It shows line liberated from the slavery of having to define form; that Pollock pioneered. It's style is similar to the taut masterpieces of minimal abstraction; the last highpoint before the art world degenerated into the faddish, conceptual, post-modern, "not-art" garbage that is seen in many cultural palaces today.

looks great.

Quite beautiful.

Wow. 14 Days of Winter on his artist site is fantastic.

Looks like a map of downtown LA...that's the movement......hmmmm

I find the first piece soothing. Maybe the artist has made sense of all that stimuli

Great combinations of movement, intuition, and chance. I really like the construction and depth.
