  What are you trying to communicate with your work? My ideas come from my interests in the urban, built environment. As I lived and traveled in different cities in China and the United States, I witnessed the continuous reshaping and renovation of these globalized urban landscapes. The elements of these constructed areas sometimes appear misplaced—ambiguous functions or anachronistic intentions emerge. As a result, the qualities of uncertainty, deficiency, inaccessibility, and... [more]

Healed By the Painting

by James Patrick Benn
Healed by the Painting A few weeks ago I ran across – and then lost the link to - a blog from a remarkable middle-aged woman writer.  Filled with an overwhelming hyperawareness of her physical flaws and psychic troubles, agitated by group travel and an impending fiftieth birthday, she fled one afternoon to Paris’   Standing in the middle of one of those famous elliptical rooms, surrounded by those swaths of swirling blues streaked in whites and pinks and strewn with rose waterlilies...

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? If I have to point out something in particular and put it in words (which I find extremely difficult as I cannot grasp a clear and determined intention throughout my work), I would say that I do my best to share with others this strange and particular feeling I face towards my own perception of time: how it relates to our memories and our own history, how it relates to and pins down our lives. I try to reveal a sort of strange and... [more]

The French Smile

by James Patrick Benn
  The French Smile They say the French don’t smile.  I disagree.  They smile all the time time ; they’re just a misunderstood people. Americans smile all the time and we smile at everybody.  We smile at the people in the elevator ; we smile at passersby on the sidewalk ; we smile at our annoying colleagues.  We are even told to smile when we answer the phone.  We smile.  We are equal opportunity smilers.  Everybody gets a smile.  It is rude not to smile.  Our culture obliges us to...

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? It depends on the project I am working on. My work is both figurative and abstract, but above all conceptual. I always work from a theme that appeals to me and will allow me to deepen my research through the creative process. I am interested in the poetic expression that evolves through the theme and the conceptual aspect of the project. What I try to communicate is expressed through the idea, the purpose, as well as the color,... [more]
