Explosive Paintings by Ben Grasso

Leave a Comment

Brooklyn-based Ben Grasso creates graphic works featuring suspended architectural structures decomposing into wooden planks as if suddenly losing the power to hold itself together.

Grasso’s paintings are feats of engineering. His is an architecture of the apocalypse, but one whose seams thread shapes we can as yet not fully determine. Excitement and surprise are as much part of this wildly imagined landscape as is a more measured, even nightmarish, uncertainty. Here the whacky, the sublime, and the catastrophic converge upon us unremittingly, but not without grace.
