Working all over the West, Ben Kilbourne tries to find new visual methods of asserting that land is not merely soil, but rather a symbiosis of interdependent parts resulting in the gestalt we call the ecosystem. He exaggerates the movement of these parts or elements to imbue them with a sense of agency. His renderings of the observed ecosystem highlight the important roles of stone, rain and sunlight among the more obvious flora and fauna, while also including the human histories that run through individual places. Mediums include painting, drawing, installation and video.
