"Inspired by datamoshing, quantum mechanics, and the hyper saturation of imagery found in daily life, Gilmer
creates oil paintings that explore the psychological effects of the figure through physical mutations that distort and merge various realities. Benton
's figurative ceramics also portray a dialogue of the human condition, using symbolism as well as physical mutations to explore the depths of the subconscious. Less than reality and more than a dream, Benton and Gilmer’s work strives to give the viewer an alternative connection to the self." Note: This stuff will burrow into your optic nerves and make you feel a little weird, maybe, about the odd beauty it contains
. So, yes: recommended.
