Ben Peterson

Eschewing the tactility and glazed textures common to the medium, Ben Peterson’s ceramic works are angular and geometric, producing an austere simplicity in even his most elaborate constructions. The works’ painted surfaces take on the appearance of weathered and patinated concrete, suggesting that despite their size, each sculpture is alluding to an architectural history. Not modeled strictly after existing buildings or objects, the works oscillate between identities as architectural models, functional objects, and primitive totems. 


He has had solo exhibitions at Ratio 3 in San Francisco, Mary Goldman Gallery in Los Angeles, G Fine Art in Washington DC, Allston Skirt Gallery in Boston, and Door 7 Gallery in Oakland. His work has been exhibited broadly at institutions including the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Walter and McBean Galleries, San Francisco Art Institute, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Pennsylvania.
