Guy Benson and Curator Doug Stapleton in conversation

  • Location: ISM Lockport Gallery, Lockport
  • Date: Sunday, June 14, 2015, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Join us at the Museum when artist Guy Benson and Curator Doug Stapleton (ISM Chicago) discuss Benson’s current work and important moments in his career as an Illinois artist. Guy Benson (Evanston IL) paints symbols and shapes in ordered patterns that banter in a conspiracy between elegance and visual riot. His intimate paintings are distinguished by their subtle palette shifts and strong surface texture. They resemble wall fragments of a pictorial language, but any syntax or meaning is confounded by their formal abstraction and playful wit. Benson is one of four artists featured in the current exhibition Focus 4: Four Solo Exhibitions. Focus 4 is an ongoing program that highlights work of accomplished artists in four separate exhibitions. The artists are selected by four fine arts curators from various sites of the state-wide Illinois State Museum system. Reservations are not required; seating is limited. Admission is free.
