Wally Workman Gallery will open their first show with artists Christopher Lee Gilmer and Ashley Benton. Inspired by datamoshing, quantum mechanics, and the hyper saturation of imagery found in daily life, Gilmer creates oil paintings that explore the psychological effects of the figure through physical mutations that distort and merge various realities. Benton's figurative ceramics also portray a dialogue of the human condition. Using symbolism as well as physical mutations to explore the depths of the subconscious, Benton's work draws on the inherent search of life's significance. Less than reality and more than a dream, Benton and Gilmer’s work strives to give the viewer an alternative connection to the self.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 5.
