In Groundwork, Chicago artist John Benton presents landscapes of overlooked, ordinary locations in a way that elevates them to places of intrigue. Each painting in this series serves as a conversation between the artist, the painting, and the landscape, portraying the extensive amount of preliminary planning Benton focuses on in his practice. Originally from Springfield, Benton and the Museum are excited to have his work featured in his hometown this summer.
