Currently on view in Gallery 1 of Western Exhibitions, Chicago is a solo exhibition by Ben Stone presenting new sculptures in a variety of media that transform two-dimensional graphics into compelling and uncanny three-dimensional forms. His interest in aberrant human behavior, especially in the context of sports and familial conflicts, continues alongside new forays in abstraction. Ben Stone delves into the psychology of low self-esteem. With each mysterious and humorous object, he ponders the condition of unnoticed beauty. In Stone’s vision, the two comically distorted figures become permanent combatants, locked in a poetic struggle.
Ben Stone is on view through January 25th, 2014.
