Leica Camera USA
RECEPTION | Michael Benari: Reality-Deconstructed
: Reality-Deconstructed at
Leica Gallery Boston
The urban landscape is reinterpreted through Benari's abstract visual language, where nature and architecture challenge our interpretation and deconstruct reality.
RECEPTION: January 18, 2018 6-9pm
Michael Benari is a Boston / New York based artist working in black and white, film and digital. His educational training is in science and medicine but ten years ago he decided to commit fully to art and photography. Essentially self-taught, he has drawn inspiration from the lives and works of Minor White, Aaron Siskind, Callum Innes, Richard Serra and many others.
Benari uses the urban landscape to create his own visual language, and in the process, make work not familiar or necessarily embraced. He aims to use visual elements in ways that surprise, and at times, provoke, so as to invite the viewer into new emotional realms. His work seeks not to make you happy or sad, but rather to question what we assume to know. His use of abstraction further challenges our understanding of what defines photography today.
Benari has had several individual and group exhibitions, in Boston, New York and Tel Aviv. He has also published four books covering several of the projects completed, most recently “Manhattan Project” and “GREY” published the spring of 2017.
