Analog Photography, Appropriated Images, Swarvoski Crystals, on Canvas mounted to Panel
16" X 12" X 2"
Benjamin collages small studies using both original analog photography and appropriated images. Each study is photographed and printed on canvas or paper and mounted to panel. Benjamin then adds materials like mercury glass, diamond dust, and Swarovski crystals to his remixed designs creating a mashup of couture art. He is highly influenced by the way culture, media, politics, fashion, and design intersect.
