- Benny Merris, An Other Another 110, photograph, 2017.
Benny Merris makes paintings that create sympathetic entanglements between nature and abstraction. His latest exhibition, "macrodaffodilia," surveys Merris's ecosystem of work and includes new photographs from the ongoing "An Other Another" series, in which Merris creates abstract paintings on his arm and photographs them in surrounding landscapes. The images are built with abundant color, rhythmic gradients, and architectural torque and oscillate between composure and wild abandon. "macrodaffodilia" will be shown at Jeff Bailey Gallery in Hudson, August 4 through September 2. An opening reception will be held on August 4, from 6pm to 8pm. Portfolio: Bennymerris.com.
