TEDDY BENFIELD, MFA 18
Aphrodisiacs

72 h x 72 w

DESCRIPTION: acrylic and house paint, money and mixed media on canvas, wall-hanging, framed.

ARTIST STATEMENT: I work primarily as a painter, photographer and screen printer. My works consist of a mixture of the three mediums to create a dialogue between traditional still life genre painting and the relationships individuals have with marketplace and consumerism through the internet culture of today. Signage combines the modern product with interior space yet has the ability to transform the modern pedestrian back in time. Representational imagery introduces the past to the present and pays homages to hand painted signs as well as the comments of class and value in traditional still life painting while room for abstraction is absorbed within traditional advertisement and still life qualities.
