Yashar Gallery is pleased to present Inner Form: sculpture and works on paper.
In this exhibition Ebben continues the breakdown of images he has collected and connected with over time. Many of these images come from the media, art history and personal photos. By selecting a shape or section of an image he reinterprets the image continually by making monochromatic paintings, drawings and objects that deteriorate and evolve from where they originally began.
Working with paper, Mylar, graphite, wood and papier-mâché in this installation he has created a counterbalance, which provokes the viewer to make their own connections.Dean Ebben is best known for his interdisciplinary approach to art making. His work has been shown in such museums and galleries as Johnson & Johnson World Headquarters in New Brunswick, NJ, Minnesota Center for Book Arts, Minneapolis, MN, Museum of Biblical Art, NY, Alice R. Rogers and Target Galleries, Saint John’s University, Collegeville, MN, A Gathering of the Tribes, New York, NY and The Center for Book Arts, NY. His work is included in numerous public and private collections such as Dieu Donne Paper Mill Inc, NY, Library of Congress, Washington DC, University of Iowa Library, IA. He earned his BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, Massachusetts, where he studied sculpture and papermaking, and earned his MFA with distinction from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York where he studied video and installation.
