Modified Arts presents “Animal Party“, featuring new artwork by Alex Benson, Sasha Lewis and Nathan Lewis – no relation. Sasha Lewis’ paintings of rhinoceri, oxen, birds and bears reincarnate Eeyore as different animals in a Lisa Frank color palette. Nathan Lewis’ flocked, faceless, forlorn figures are simultaneously grotesque and inviting. Alex Benson’s irreverent, self-referential sculptures are his physical ponderings on employment, careers and adulthood. All together, the work of these three artists will offer a mix of humor and despondency – a sort of cheerful gloom.
