recent works by David Bender
July 7th-August 15th 2008
To The Ethers is a series created from selected samples of recycled wood. The unique patterns of the grain are framed and presented as paintings. David Benders work focuses on the beauty of nature which is frequently overlooked. For Bender, moving from macro to micro scale was a grounding experience. The work brings to light our dependence on wood, and forces the viewer to experience a unique change in perception.
