The work is made from a method I developed that allows the underside of the paint layer to be shown as the outward surface. The viewable surface is identical to peeling the entire paint layer off, and then flipping it over. This approach opens up a way to expose the bones of the process of painting itself- Mistakes and do-overs, erasures and repaints, scratching away the paint, smudging it off, things that happen within the painting procedure which are usually covered up, are all visible to assess. As well as showing the history involved in the making of each composition, it also creates a dialog about the anatomy of abstract painting, by literally providing a new perspective.

Making these paintings inspires me every time because of their honesty- thoroughly recording every detail within the process of art making.

With an academic background in painting and philosophy, Benjamin is deeply interested in the use of art as actionable events within theories of knowledge. Benjamin's paintings are noted for their epistemic bearing in the questions that they invoke- problems within cognition, truth and the limits of knowledge are wrestled with and exposed. Concept, process and visual outcome align as one, producing work that witnesses through its own self-evidence. View each piece to learn more about the conceptual elements in their respective series.
