Floating among Phantoms by Ben Reeves
Floating among Phantoms features a collection of new and recent paintings by acclaimed BC artist Ben Reeves. Reeves’s artistic practice is an intensive, personal account of perception and how the world is realized through pictures. The exhibition draws together paintings from several bodies of work made since 2014, in which Reeves investigates the provisional structures of tents, Vancouver city lights seen from afar, close observations of the suburban landscape and seaside beach views. Together, these works point to overarching trends and the ongoing material investigation of paint that extends throughout the artist’s practice.
