press release

Eröffnung am Samstag, den 16. August 2008, 16-20 Uhr

“My work lays emphasis on the temporal and political potential of looking, and is, in a primary sense, a meditation upon seeing. My thought process is not abstract but works with actual, tangible, materials, things that have a sensuous character. I use colour, concentration, nuance, focus, space, and light, things that we can recognise and understand. Within the course of my work I try to give these abstract terms a concrete content relevant to my feelings and experience.” Tom Benson
