210 AR4T SPACE and Ben Brough Present: “A Million Charming Creatures”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
July 22, 2010 (Laguna Beach, CA) 210 AR4T Space is proud to offer new work from artist Ben Brough. “A Million Charming Creatures,” a new loose cannon of characters to infiltrate the canvas. A celebration of moments of being tied down by society’s screaming demands but gloriously weaving your way through the muck to open roads. A semi-abstract cast living on a bread crumb trail between gelatin and an endless itinerary of sea dwelling and fine dining. Having been raised on a diet of Hawaiian tropical sanctuary and urban dust, Ben keeps his ocean influences close appearing vaguely but loyal in his works with his unique approach to caveman-like ways of image making.
