ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:
Ashlie Benton’s evocative paintings deploy a unique vocabulary of visual forms. Mysterious geometric symbols, suggestive traces of text, and expressive fragments of human anatomy.
The scattered, often fragmented nature of the images paired with the deliberate naivete of Benton’s drawing style has produced an oeuvre of apparent innocence, even vulnerability. The unpretentious nature of her work belies impressive sophistication.
