Benjamin Hawley is an emerging artist living and working in Boston, Massachusetts. He received his MFA from Boston University in 2022. His work is a conversation between his observations,  stillness, liminal space, and formal abstraction. His studio practice begins digestively, fixating on specific objects to draw as many nutrients from to fuel imagery. In time, the familiar motifs act as an armature or skeleton upon which he imposes ideas of abstraction and other observations like atmospheric phenomena or personal color. His collage-like oil paintings strive to surprise and revive the feeling of encountering something for the first time.
