Ben Beres | They're Shootin' To Kill

February 2 - 24, 2018 

First Thursday Opening February 1st 6 - 8pm

Moving away from his trademark of indecipherable or miniature text, Beres zooms in to focus on single words, simple phrases, and short sentences. Inspired by the minimalist poet Aram Saroyan, this exhibition includes many three-word poems, using six to eight-letter words, separating the words into multiple parts to explore new meaning. Homonyms, puns, placement, order and disorder all are deftly employed. The grim and often humorous hidden messages in Beres’ prints tap into our collective anxieties, whether they are social and political or simply personal loss and love. He addresses this anxiety by employing wit and wordplay as a way to draw out the poison for a bittersweet catharsis.
