Benjamin Guidry: Azonal
Benjamin Guidry’s pieces tend to highlight unifying and divisive characteristics found in society through racial prejudices, partisan politics, organized religions, and human-environment interaction. Frustrated by modern bombardments of political and social ignorance, Guidry conveys existential confusion with symbols of naivety and aggression. Taking from artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Georg Baselitz, and Keith Haring, he employs expressive paint strokes coinciding with illustrative shapes and figures. Guidry uses the term “culture marks” in reference to the seas of gestural and graphic lines which reverberate within his paintings.
