Ben Watkins

American, b. 1977

Ben Watkins is fascinated by the fluidity and possibility of one thing becoming another.  He “thinks of a line as a timeline, one that affects space and surface: it divides, defines, separates, and travels through a surface.” In his plexiglass and wood pieces, incised lines move from edge to edge. The etched glass lends a physical presence to lines that may otherwise be only implicated. It is in the intersections of these lines that unique spaces are created that carve a balance between confined boundaries and stretching growth.

Watkins’ recent hydrocal plaster works were shown in a solo exhibition at AS220 Project Space, Providence, RI. Exploration of texture, pattern and the phenomena of light and shadow are key elements in these seductive impressions.

Ben Watkins holds and MFA (2003) from The Rhode Island School of Design and a BFA (2001) from Murray State University, KY.
