This painting offers a look into a vibrant corner of the artist’s world, full of interactions, myths, allegories and Styer's growing reservoir of self-referential images. This composition depicts a primordial visual tale that invites the viewer to imbue it with their own meaning.

Styer's work conjures mythologies, traditions and legends that might never have existed, yet remain intuitively readable to the viewer. The artist's compositions draw their imagery from a shared unconscious. Styer conceives of his role as both a visual accumulator and a spiritual translator—creating works that combine medieval marginalia, folk textile, commercial ephemera and surrealist vignettes.

③ Artist:

Benjamin Styer

Benjamin Styer’s paintings combine medieval marginalia, folk textile, commercial ephemera and surrealist vignettes. As both a visual accumulator and a spiritual translator, the artist creates compositions that conjure the intuitive and timeless quality of mythologies and legends. Styer’s work taps into a hive-unconscious to evoke the feeling of lost music, thoughts of thoughts and slippery imagery from half-remembered books.
