Artist's Statement

Benji RowanIn both my mosaics and paintings I attempt to tell stories through visual cues in the images I make. Shapes, colors, and figures come together to produce two dimensional narratives. Even when the only information is color and shape, I give clues through the titles of a work to explain the situations, or narratives, that I am trying to convey. I like to say that my mosaics are decorated stories, stories that leave plenty of room for interpretation. While my paintings are more representational, they too allow each viewer to draw their own conclusions due to different subtle references. My work can be thought of as stills from a motion picture. What came before, or will come after, is for you to decide.
