Trying to Not Thinking

IMG_0869Incline Gallery is proud to present a Solo show of work by Benjamin Vilmain. On August 25, 2017, please join us for the opening reception from 6-9pm

“This body of work is in conversation with nature, which exists in the shapes and unintentional marks around our city as much as in the wilderness. I notice things based on what I’ve made, and make things based on what I’ve noticed. Ripples of water and graffiti marks, cat tails and beard hairs, banana slugs and sound vibrations to name just a few. These forms reference these things, but they are no one thing. They are mirrors/portals – reflections of the viewer’s mind as much as the cyclical relationship between my eyes and my hands.”
