Emily Benz is a multidisciplinary artist, working primarily in painting, and in sculpture. Recently, her practice has dealt with themes of vanity, dysphoria and anhedonia, routine and ritual, and of failure and success. Parameters such as medium specificity are applied to a greater context of existential rationale and cognitive distortion.
Her work has been previously exhibited at various locations throughout Oregon, California and France.
Benz (born in Portland, Oregon 1985) received her MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute (2018), and her BFA at Southern Oregon University (2007). She currently lives and works in San Francisco, California.
