Upfor presents Ben Buswell at Photofairs San Francisco

Join us at Fort Mason in San Francisco, February 23rd through 25th, for Photofairs as we present photo-based works by Oregon artist Ben Buswell. These new works further his exploration of tensions between image and object: Buswell experiments with ways to abstract, interrupt or erode photographic imagery to emphasize the physical characteristics of media, such as the emulsion layer's gloss. His imagery is typically grounded in geologic features laced with histories of ethical and political tensions.

Final day: Ben Buswell's The Story is Not the Story

Today is the final day to take in Ben Buswell's installation of photo-based and glass sculptures. Buswell's works navigate spaces in-between: for example, the wall-hanging photos vibrate between repetition and uniqueness, while the fused glass sculptures seem both soft and immovably solid. Perhaps the most important quality, however, is how these works seem to respond to the viewer's movement through the space – something that requires presence to experience. Today is your last chance. Upfor is open until 6:00 pm.

As always, individual works may be seen by appointment after the exhibition closes. Please inquire for pricing and availability.
