Duel/Dual:Bryan Valenzuela and Benjamin Hunt
Fri, March 4, 2016 – Sat, April 2, 2016
Benjamin Hunt and Bryan Valenzuela were the winners of the prestigious Leff-Davis Fund for Visual Artists of the Sacramento Valley.
Hunt, a dynamic local sculptor working in plexiglass, creates haunting three dimensional pieces that capture light and transcend time. Focusing on themes of nostalgia and memory he recreates household objects ranging from family photos to kitchen chairs. Hunt’s use of pexiglass allows these objects to transform into ghostly remnants of the past.
Valenzuela, works with mixed media (primarily paint, needle and thread) to create detailed and complex pieces. Upon close inspection of the works visitors are able to view a barrage of words intermingled with other media, aiding in the creation of the larger composition.
