Colored Pearls, 2016 , Oil on canvas, 60 x 90 inches

Ben Weiner creates abstract paintings that can be compared to a visual representation of mind altering drugs. His hyper-realistic, trompe l’oeil paintings exhibit macro shots of paint swirls and commercial objects. His work evokes the mixture of consumer culture, the fashion industry and the art world forming their duality of identity as sublime creation and commercial item. The themes and references in his work reinforce their status as consumer/art objects.
