Ben Buswell's sculptural work spans diverse media, encompassing incised photographs, ceramics, metals, glass and more. Through physical processes (such as scratching, piercing, melting and tearing), he subjects these materials to accumulations of small, repetitive gestures which build into a complex whole. This process-based approach investigates the inseparability of the material from what is done to it, a parallel for the relationship of body and mind. Buswell is a Hallie Ford Fellow in the Visual Arts (2015) and a two-time recipient of the Career Opportunity Grant from the Oregon Arts Commission and Ford Family Foundation (2014 and 2011). He was an Artist-in-Residence at Bullseye Projects this summer.
