Ben Dallas
Serials
Dimensional Works

September 3 - September 26, 2015

formatting

Ben Dallas’ dimensional works strike a balance between painting and sculpture, finding harmony in precise geometric forms and painterly abstract surface. In Serials, the artist presents work from several series of wall mounted constructions that share a common focus. Each series offers a likeness but not sameness, presenting a uniformity in the work while allowing for differences to emerge upon closer examination. In the series Twice, Dallas’ simple dualistic combinations consist of two painted panels, fitted together creating a structural component of equal importance to the layers of paint applied to the work's surface.

Dallas’ dimensional paintings are developed and constructed mostly by intuitive sensibility with little planning or premeditation. By encouraging accidents and surprises in his process, he obtains a less predictable result from his initial intention.

Dallas received an MA in Art History from the University of Illinois in 1971. His work has been in exhibitions nationally including the Rockford Art Museum (Rockford, IL), Orange County Center for Contemporary Art (Santa Ana, CA), Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art (Chicago, IL) and the San Francisco Craft and Folk Art Museum (San Francisco, CA). Dallas has shown with the Elizabeth Leach Gallery since 1996.
