KARL BENJAMIN on Geoform

Karl Benjamin, Vertical Stripes #13, 1960, 50" x 40", oil on canvas

There is a remarkable interview with West Coast abstract painter Karl Benjamin by Julie Karabenick on the Geoform website. The extensive interview includes a wealth of images revealing the depth of Benjamin's ouvre, and his investigative process. Most striking is the variety of his approaches to configuration within a highly consistent and refined approach to color relations. A generous feature for a generous and deserving artist.
