Opening Reception: September 9th, 6-8PM

Reyes Projects is pleased to present new work by James Benjamin Franklin on the upper level, and Joe Roberts on the lower level of the gallery. The two solo exhibitions will open on Saturday, September 9th, 2017.

Central to the new work James Benjamin Franklin, a resident of Detroit, has produced are sculptural paintings that explore seductively colored shapes. His pop art style paintings use white backgrounds to accentuate unusual drip patterns, overlapping color fields, and hidden objects painted into the three-dimensional frames.

Joe Roberts is a mixed-media artist, and he will be showing dynamic, crowded paintings alongside past collage works. His work is influenced primarily by the Comic books he read as a child. Drawing in crayons and relying heavily on personal symbols and imagery, his work is laced with nostalgia.

Seen together, Franklin and Roberts present an intimate reflection on the quiet gestures that pervade much of modern daily life.
