Los Angeles-based artist Benjamin Echeverria (b. 1980) presents three environmental interventions accompanied by a selection of new paintings in which the roles of the materials are bent, reversed and consolidated. Prior to being stretched, the paintings are taken apart and reassembled, a process the artist began investigating in a series of sculptures in 2008. Oil paint’s plasticity and resistance to containment are key, as each painting is a context in which the will of the material asserts itself. This is the artist’s second exhibition with Parapet Real Humans.
