Opening Friday, June 15th, from 7PM - 10PM
Friday, June 15th,from 7-10 PM, the Milk Factory will feature the opening of MAPS + MONUMENTS, an exhibition of prints by Ben Dimock.
In this series of prints, Ben Dimock investigates architecture as a coded language that dictates daily experience. Rendering this language through the printed image allows Dimock to produce multiple permutations from a single photograph or drawing.Through the decisive omission of built form from rigid landscapes and implementation of fragmented grids, censorious overlays and frantic mark-making, Dimock injects disorder into the built environment.
Dimock’s work will be shown in conjunction with DECIPHER, a continuation of The Parlor’s monthly salon series. In this month’s installment, The Parlor will be featuring a collection of text based works presented by Tim Hogan, Jeff Sherfey, Jenn Swann, and Andreas Whillhoff.

His prints and drawings challenge distinctions between abstraction and figuration, composed of fragments of built structures and landscapes, mark and gesture.
