Ben Weiner Featured in W Magazine

Congratulations to gallery artist, Ben Weiner, on his recent feature in W Magazine! Says writer Kat Herriman:

“Ben Weiner’s Queens studio is filled with both paint cans and prescription pill bottles—a testament to the artist’s unique practice of transforming household substances (both legal and illegal) into fragile crystal sculptures and psychedelic prints. Using commonplace stimulants like Five Hour Energy (Berry flavor) and MDMA, Weiner probes our curious trust in drugs by turning them into something unrecognizable, messy, and yet distinctively chemical. His process is loosely derived from chemigrams and is as much creative experimentation as it is chemistry, but it’s the unpredictability of his results that make them all the more intriguing.”
