– Fletcher Benton
For more than three decades, Fletcher Benton has been refining and redefining geometric sculpture. The result is one of the major oeuvres of our era. In art, geometry is almost always an appeal to timeless absolutes. For him, geometric form is not so much abstract as immediate, resourceful, alive. From blunt simplicity, he generates buoyancy. From disparity, unity.
Benton calls himself a "builder." His material is steel. His forms are geometric: planar, angular, circular. This material and these forms imply modernity. Steel, after all, did not become a common industrial material until the middle of the nineteenth century. Geometric forms, on the other hand, provide the structural premises of just about every building ever built, including the simplest hut. Fletcher Benton's work is nothing short of timeless.
Benton's work is included in the collections of the MET, Brooklyn Museum, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Whitney Museum of American Art, Minneapolis Institute of Art, Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Stand=ford Museum of ARt, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Denver Art Museum, The Victoria and ALbert Museum, Laumeier Sculpture Park, The Klingspor Museum, Offenbach, Germany, The Rockefeller Collection and many more.

– DAMIáN SiQUeiROS
The photographs of· Damián Siqueiros illustrate his recurring concerns surrounding the construction of identity. Doing so by the represented elements, as well as the technique that he uses. Content and form are woven into a fabric of continuous reflection and open to questioning of· our self'-representation and the world – of what we consider to be essential and true. Each image constitutes the aestheticized shaping of a struggle that is at the same time intimate and social.
The creation of his images brings him to have a multidisciplinary practice: he becomes a make-up artist, stage designer, director, photographer and digital artist. The fist stage, the pre-production, concentrates on creating the character. The choices made on the styling and the make-up are fundamental. The photo shoots comes right after, either on the studio or on set. The last part of the process is the postproduction, where the image is slightly retouched or constructed according to each project. But most importantly it is an aspect of· the process where the images receive much of their richness of texture.
Based in Montreal, Siqueiros works with events and products in ways that are emotionally and visually engaging. Clients and collaborators such as Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, Ford, Cas Public, Vogue Mx have allowed him to create a visual voice that is specific to them and a form of sustainable advertisement: a kind of publicity that stimulates their public beyond a transactional relationship. Furthermore, Sequieros has a strong resume of exhibitions, residencies and distinguished awards within the field.
