Ben Duax Exhibition

October 1 - October 29

Artist Statement, Ben Duax:

Davis Native Benjamin Duax has painting degrees from Hunter College in New York and the Glasgow School of Art. His recent work concentrates on lived digital experience, capturing rapid streams of information through painting and printmaking, as well as computer-based methodologies. Last summer when art galleries and museums were closed he arranged an online exhibit of international artists, including several Canadians, hosted at www.lite-of-worlds.ca. Recent work, including the work on display at Gallery 1855, involves collaboration with fellow Davis native, James Ketchum, an electronic musician and organist most known as one-half of local favourites Mondo Lava. Since 2017 he has been on the committee of the Butterbiggens Prize, a bursary for Alumni of Scottish Art Schools. For information about additional work or exhibitions please see www.benduax.com
