“My paintings are informed by architecture found in the everyday,” Erik Benson states. It even seems to influence his process. He pours acrylic onto a glass table, lets the substance dry, and hand-cuts it into thousands of shapes that he collages into urban landscapes. See Benson’s latest in “Sleep Walking,” at Edward Tyler Nahem Fine Art in Midtown from September 26 through October 25. Among the 10 nocturnal cityscapes is Night Weed, an acrylic on linen over panel.
