FLAT ART

MARK DAVEY, JAMES IRWIN, AMY STEPHENS & JULIAN WILD

 

“Sculpture is what you bump into when you back up to see a painting”
- Barnett Newman

William Benington Gallery is pleased to begin our 2015 program of exhibitions with Flat Art. For this group show we have invited four contemporary sculptors to explore the concerns of their personal practices while limiting them to use only the walls of the gallery to display their work. By being restricted to territory usually reserved for paintings and photography - or flat art - the artists are confronting both their own and the viewers' perceptions of sculpture's position within the gallery or home. 

Flat Art features new work by Mark Davey, James Irwin, Amy Stephens and Julian Wild.
