02-05-2013 12:00:00 20-06-2013 12:00:00 America/New_York The Park - Paintings by Erik Benson | Mon.-Fri., 9am-5pm Erik Benson's new series of paintings, created with thousands of shapes hand-cut from dried sheets of acrylic paint, depict colorful but eerily abandoned playgrounds in stark urban landscapes. The Park expands on Benson's interest in playgrounds, particularly in the play structures' boldly unnatural and manmade coloring. The jungle gyms appear to sit on top of the surface rather than integrating with the landscape -- a metaphor for his own painting techniques. These exquisite compositions of urban landscape will be exhibited in collaboration with Edward Tyler Nahem Fine Art LLC. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=135404 Arsenal Gallery Arsenal Gallery
