Los Angeles based artist, Estevan Carlos Benson, works with the discarded and syncretic. He specializes in mixed media, photography and new media. He creates a “bricolage”.
The bottle caps nailed to a discarded piece of wood in the mixed media composition, “Rada” are used as an instrument in the music of, “The Sun”. The graffiti in “Apple” derives from the photo documentation of “It’s Probably Speculative”. While that title itself originates from the piece, “Pronto Sabre Quien Soy”.
These objects, words and images form a larger tapestry. One about the constant exchange of culture and found objects. Borrowing from Haitian Vodou, John Cage and other processes, Estevan creates a yet unformed image. One about the cheap, the miraculous and the dredge.
