Benji Dorocke:Matters in E-6- Drawings From The Well
April 28 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Drawings From The Well explores sources of individual creative spirit and drive. Within the well lies all parts of the self; from the surface we draw from daily, to depths seldom acknowledged. At the point of overflow, the depths begin to rise allowing those motives and feelings to become visible. I find these periodic wellings to be helpful in self understanding, and important to growth. Every well contains all of our influences, memories, and perspectives; the fibers of the self held at varying depths. Multifaceted in our nature; humans take on more interests, roles, and traits than we are often aware of. Trips to the depths of the well can feel treacherous, however with exploration comes clarity upon surfacing.
Benji Dorocke is an Indianapolis based artist currently working in photo, audio, and video. They have been working in digital imaging since early childhood, largely focusing on photography and design. In 2019, they began attending the Herron School of Art and Design, majoring in photography. Much of their work deals with themes of identity and documenting their experiences, presented typically with a hybrid analog-digital process.
