DESCRIPTION

The gallery will also be opening a new Hallway Project by Mark Benson.

Potted flowers are force fit onto too-high shelves, creating vibrant and cramped sculptures along the ceiling of the gallery entrance hallway. As they are manipulated into tight spaces, new and unnatural shapes emerge that strangely seem to add character and humor to the sadly bound plants. This work embodies numerous metaphors of constraint as related to artistic production and personal relationships.
