BENITO RANGEL DE MARIA
Through the use of varied constructed – deconstructed media, my work explores our inherent human desire to mark and brand ourselves and each other. My work also investigates our interest in marking and documenting our environment.
Following the rewarding Artist Residency at Monte Azul in Costa Rica, it was a thrill to be invited as an Artist In Residence at Kala Art Institute, Berkeley. This residency will provide me the opportunity to further develop a body of work utilizing some of the best equipment, and expertise, available.
Artist Residency at Monte Azul Contemporary ArtJanuary 2017
The Artist Residency at Monte Azul Contemporary Art, Maca Arte Contemporaneo, January 12-26, 2017, was very special. It has given me an opportunity to reflect, explore, and most of all, contemplate my work. It has allowed me to refocus and “command my space.”
