"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. The artist's current exhibition "In Waves" can be viewed on the gallery website.
