Ben Schonzeit:
Abstract Figuration

Ben Schonzeit, Delta, 2009, Collage, 11.5 X 8 inches

Work by Ben Schonzeit, previously seen at the Museum in the exhibitions, Still Life: 1970s Photorealism and Garden Party, is featured in a solo exhibition that reveals an entirely different aspect of the career of this artist, who is a central figure in the American Photorealist movement. This is very different from the realist work seen in the concurrent A Feast For The Eyes exhibition. The Contemporary Gallery exhibition showcases Schonzeit's collage and sculptural work -- abstract figurations of human forms or portraits that give new life to his materials. Work by Ben Schonzeit has been seen in solo and group exhibitions throughout the U.S. and Europe and is widely included in public collections. A native of Brooklyn, he now lives and works in SoHo.
