About the Work
This edition is part of our inaugural Curator Series: Edition 01, which was curated by Saša Bogojev and debuted at CAN Art Fair 2022.
"Loosely approaching perspective and dimension, Benzo is able to create the most impossible arrangements of unreal plants and odd vases and interior objects. Primarily focusing on composition and the ways to render their velvety surface, the artist is playing with gradients often reaching for oversaturated hues of a certain color. Contrasted against dim and neutral backgrounds, these compositions gain prominence while creating an atmosphere of freedom or confusion. In his newest body of work, the artist is attributing almost human characteristics and elements to his objects, as well as adding a more expressive painterly approach through brush stroke-rich patterns." —Saša Bogojev

Authentication & Resale
Signed, dated, and numbered by the artist on front. This work is also accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by Exhibition A.
Be sure to keep your Certificate of Authenticity (COA) in a safe place. We are unable to replace or reissue COAs.
Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 3-5 weeks for framing and delivery.
All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Any artwork that is floated will be placed in a frame that has a ⅝” wide flat face and is 1 5/16” deep. Work will be floated with a 1” border around it.

We are unable to accept returns on custom framed artwork. Our general policy is that we do not accept returns.
