Benjamin Terry

OBJECT 28
2014
acrylic, latex, spray paint, graphite, plywood, and glue
19 1/2 x 22 x 2 inches

Benjamin Terry’s recent wall-bound sculptures possess forms, textures, and colors of the unconscious mind. The handmade quality, rough-hewn scratches and scribbles, and rudimentary, rounded shapes summon a child-like past where simplified things hold deep and mysterious meanings. Object 28 hints at a number of associations – cave, boulder, or rainbow – though the work evokes a tender, emotional response, rather than a literal reaction. Terry received his BFA and MFA in drawing and painting from the University of North Texas. He has exhibited work in numerous solo and group shows across the DFW area and in Houston. He was featured in vol. 96 of New American Paintings: West Issue, and received both the Dallas Museum of Art’s Clare Hart Degoyler and Arch and Anne Giles Kimbrough awards.

estimated retail value: $2,500
