The Geometric Landscape
Alan Avery Art Company
Featuring work by: Gabriel Benzur

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 21, to Sat, Oct 27 2012

Internationally acclaimed architectural and interior commercial photographer Gabriel Benzur makes his fine art debut. "I was blown away when he brought in his portfolio," states Alan Avery. "I have known him for 25 years and have worked with him professionally, but I had no idea that he created such beautiful fine art photographs. I immediately asked him if he would join our stable of artists. Finding out that he also was a master wood turner was icing on the cake."

A native Atlantan, Benzur has been a photographer for nearly 50 years. This exhibition features photographs Benzur has taken during his travels. Capturing a mix of man-made structures among rural surroundings, Benzur creates a tension with the juxtaposition of geometric forms within nature. However seemingly incongruous, these elements come together with the artist’s clean, balanced compositions.

Benzur's wood turned vessels compliment the basic elements and themes in his photography. Like the industrial structures, Benzur has formed the wood; yet, the organic lines of the vessels contrast with his photographs' sharp angles. The use of both media - photography and sculpture - emphasizes his desire to represent the beauty of nature, as it is manipulated by man.
