Works

Benjamin Edwards (artist) Benjamin Edwards

His work deals mainly with "found imagery" collected from media (magazines, the internet, newspapers, video games, photographs, blueprints, logos and graphics) and then manipulated using 2d and 3d graphic software. This imagery is then massed into a "virtual space" on canvas, creating immense depth and vibrant colors. Benjamin Edwards is represented by Greenberg Van Doren in New York City.

His first solo exhibition was at the Artemis Greenberg Van Doren Gallery, New York, in 2001. The exhibition consisted of two works, Convergence, 2000-2001 and Decoherence, 2001 facing one another from opposite ends of the gallery. His artistic method was described by The Village Voice as "exhaustive", with Convergence taking 2500 hours to complete.
