Ben Peterson at Ratio 3

BPeterson-Installation_Nebraska-011-TITLE copy

A figuration fuzzy, from the drift of memory, photographic genericism more closely resembling the thing remembered. Like the physical pieces, the individuated parts, of Peterson’s drawing’s surrealism. They become sculptures vaguely reminiscent. A betweenness from the tectonic rigidness of icons and its referential softness. On the cusp of function amorphously denied, in primitive imperfection, like cow tools. Impossible to place. Objects balanced on the tip of the tongue.
