You may need to look twice at these Ben Grasso masterpieces to recognize that they are in fact oil paintings and not miraculously suspended structures. The hyperrealistic paintings are a display of exceptional artistic vision. They incite a level of excitement in its viewers that is unmatched by most oil paintings in this highly digitalized world where artwork is only art if it is manipulated by technology.
As his website so eloquently describes, "Grasso’s paintings are feats of engineering. His is an architecture of the apocalypse. Excitement and surprise are as much part of this wildly imagined landscape as is a more measured, even nightmarish, uncertainty. Here the whacky, the sublime, and the catastrophic converge upon us unremittingly, but not without grace."
His work all follow a similar theme of blurring the lines between construction and deconstruction, and there is much more to see on his website.
