ABOUT THE WORK
This edition is part of our inaugural Curator Series. 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
