Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present In Waves, featuring new work by BENJAMIN DEGEN. The artist’s fourth solo exhibition at the Gallery, In Waves presents paintings and drawings that continue his exploration of landscape, movement, and observation. In Gallery II, we will be exhibiting two new sculptures in brass by Alain Kirili.
Degen’s works employ extensive mark-making and fluid touches to describe a human presence. As the paint darts across the canvas or the ink is actively applied on paper, we move through the landscape while the landscape moves through us. Degen’s act of looking becomes a way for us to see ourselves, within a moment, connected to this world.
BENJAMIN DEGEN was born in 1976 in Brooklyn, NY. He received a BFA from The Cooper Union in 1998. Select exhibitions include “Inner Landscapes,” Galleria Anna Marra, Rome, IT; “Painting as a Radical Form,” Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia, IT; and “Greater New York,” MoMA PS1, Long Island City, NY. His works are included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, NYC; The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY; Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia, IT; The Nerman MoCA, Overland Park, KS; and more.
ALAIN KIRILI is a Franco-American sculptor born in 1946 in Paris, France. He lives and works in New York City. He has had solo museum exhibitions with the Musée de l’Orangerie, Paris; the Musée Rodin, Paris; and the Brooklyn Museum. Kirili has been included in group exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; MoMA P.S. 1, New York; the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C.; and the Jardin du Palais-Royal, Paris.
