Benjamin Hollingsworth and Jason Shelowitz "The Stock"
"The Stock," a contemporary art project by Benjamin Hollingsworth and Jason Shelowitz, showcases mixed media works thematically based on our community, giving back and cultural understanding– taking stock in our community. The show is curated by Anne Huntington.
Shelowitz, based in New York, traveled to South Carolina to work with Hollingsworth, based in Charleston and New York. The outcome is a vibrant and multi-dimensional narration of Shelowitz and Hollingsworth’s interpretations and ideals of the theme on large scale panels and small scale paintings. The mixed media creations successfully present a dynamic and explosive exchange, generating dialogue and buzz. This is the first collaboration between Shelowitz and Hollingsworth. The result shows the fusion of two conceptually diverse artists who came together from different cities with talent and individualized artistic approaches and backgrounds. The outcome exhibits artistic and communal stock and power.
