From November 18th through January 1st, BoxHeart presents Gavin Benjamin: Heads of State on exhibit in our main gallery
and Alice Raymond: Earth on exhibit in our upstairs gallery.

Gavin Benjamin: Heads of State
Art Gavin Benjamin combines his original analog photography and appropriated images with collage, paint, varnish, and other materials like Swarovski crystals to create a mash-up of couture art. He investigates the intersection of culture, media, politics, fashion, and design, addressing questions that (continue to) confront a man of color in America today. Benjamin’s artwork reflects everything that he is thinking – it includes everything that he loves and everything that he is challenged by. It’s honest and curious and bright and thoughtful. And, sometimes a little dark. It’s all of the things that made him want to be a professional artist in the first place.Based on the revolutionary soul of Benjamin’s grandfather and brothers in the village of Guyana, his series Heads of State series bestows this legacy with the legitimacy, power, and honor it deserves. Benjamin’s Heads of State series is Neo Baroque, Bespoke, Cinematic, Beautiful, Engaging, and Contemporary.
Alice Raymond: Earth
With her new exhibition Earth, Raymond offers us a pictorial immersion in her making of territory, with matrices and projections, giving the visitor and collector the rare opportunity to travel a bit with the artist. The idea came to her with the memory of a David Hockney opening, during which she was able to find herself alone in the exhibition space while all the guests were sharing a drink at the reception … It was like a dream, an hour of imaginary walk with the old man. Respect for barrier gestures invites us to an intimate visit with the artist via the Internet at the time of your appointment. You will find yourself in an exhibition-lab, with works like routes of colorful lines, ethereal surfaces like impressions (In French, the word impression means both printing and impression.) and also works awaiting you for their finalization … Of the time of lock-down we found back the taste for DIY and the solutions for art made locally.


BoxHeart is OPEN! Stop by, schedule your gallery visit/private viewing, or explore BoxHeart in 3D space. We are thrilled to provide even more intimate and authentic experiences for viewing art.
