Ben Brandt's paintings were all over the walls of our last house tour. He and his wife Elizabeth have a great space made more so by Ben's artwork. This weekend you can see his paintings in person at Caro D'Offay Gallery in Wicker Park, where two Bens (Brandt and Marcus) share opening night billing. Stop by 2204 W North Avenue between 7 and 10 pm on Saturday the 14th for the opening reception.
A quote from Ben on the show: I’m inspired by the patterns, structures and textures of the built environment. There is a beauty to the organization of systems, spaces and forms in architecture and the accumulation of history that informs my work as a painter and sculptor.
