Benjamin S. Jones explores pattern, fractures, shifts, and realignment to question the idea of development, destruction and co-dependence, and in turn obsessive fetishes and vain ambitions. He explores the dualities of the habitat that is at once residential and industrial, private and public, constructed and de-constructed. These dualities are further explored through a language of form that pairs elements that are highly finished and completely raw, explicit and evocative.

Gallery SATORI is pleased to announce the first solo show of Benjamin S. Jones (MFA from Department of Sculpture + Extended Media) in New York. Evoking a sense of rapid production and consumption, the exhibition features a group of sculptures that utilize architecture and urban planning as metaphors to probe issues of growth, frailty, and self-destruction.
