A visual arts gallery opening featuring works by Pete Cullen and Colin Benjamin, two Baltimore-based artists with different formal approaches, attempting a pincer movement against technology, dogma, and received ideas.
In what is billed as “a pincer movement against teleology, dogma, and perceived ideas,” tonight’s exhibit by Pete Cullen and Colin Benjamin might seem like one of those butt-sniffing wine and cheese-cube Art-parties designed to overwhelm you with theory and your lack of knowledge, but the work itself promises relief, as seen in Mr. Benjamin’s recent images of orderly and straightforwardly rendered paintings of objects to puzzle over (literally, as we view from a static point above the still life arrangements), and Mr. Cullen’s drawn, painted, and sculpted offerings of questions, answers, and punchlines.
