"As the picture takes on form, and pattern, and structure, it can start to show me a reflection, the patterns of movement, and the larger landscape around me. The sun rises and sets. The moon waxes and wanes. The horizon becomes a continuous line which describes the furthest point and the nearest point simultaneously." Benjamin Degen
In a burst of color and welter of mark-making, Degen paints our world. Strokes laid down in the abstract are perceived as a heightened form of reality in his hands. Poetry in motion as the artist's own words rim the canvas.
