Ben Echeverria’s paintings contain and exhibit the residue of their making and the processes inherent in the practice of painting. Often developed over years, the paintings feel as if they could be both found and made. The imprints of the typically marginalized yet contingent elements of painting, such as hardware and other mechanisms that physically support it have aesthetic agency. Oil paint at times is used not only to compose and depict visual information, but also to literally hold the painting together. The artist is interested in emphasizing and exploring the three-dimensional reality of painting, as an object in space, and from this perspective emerge methods of installation that engage the environments in which the work is situated.
Ben Echeverria was born in 1980 and lives and works in South Los Angeles. Recent exhibitions include a solo project at Parapet Real Humans, St Louis (2017) where he will have a second solo exhibition in October 2019, and group exhibitions at 356 S. Mission Road, Los Angeles (2014); Salon 94 at Frieze London (2014); Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco (2014). Echeverria has developed the experimental curatorial, exhibition and publication program, Reserve Ames, since 2013.
