Ben Askevold, Spiraling, 2019

We are so pleased to be able to feature Askevold’s work in our virtual exhibition Street Stories, up now at Brassworks Gallery. Click here to see the show:

It’s a frightening snapshot-in-time on a bright sunny day. Askevold writes that “The car is accelerating into the figure. The symbolism is the loss of control in one’s life, or a reflection in one’s dream state.” We’ve probably all had that dream before.

Askevold adds that “The license plate is a little inside joke I hid inside the painting. It’s the penal code for vehicular manslaughter.”
