Equinox Gallery is pleased to present Something Edge, a new body of work by Ben Reeves. Ben Reeves’ artistic practice is a way of exploring and learning about the world as well as a material and intellectual pursuit that unfurls not only new understandings about perception but an equal amount of uncertainty, which in turn fuels further curiosity. Ruminating on his current series of works, Reeves explains: “These paintings are views from one space, looking into another. I equate this with how experiences are always made up of multiple realities, multiple spaces. For example, the present is always haunted by the past. When I think back to my childhood, growing up here on the West Coast, I realize that it was both the place I thought it was and it wasn’t. I didn’t know that the place I grew up in both was and wasn’t itself.” How, then, does an artist begin to address the layered histories embedded in the land?
