Ben Sack: Captured in Glorious Detail
July 18, 2017
To say Ben Sack’s Large scale drawings are epic is an understatement. At 77″ x 68″ and 61″ x 63″ respectively, Brilliant Studio provided huge, flawless files with impeccable detail. The resulting giclée prints are true to the glorious originals, with careful attention paid to the reproduction of line work and textures. Sack created these drawings as part of a residency that included a trip around the world.
The prints turned out wonderfully! I have to thank you for everything. You and the team did a truly, TRULY, remarkable job! Thank you!

About the Artist: Ben Sack
Ben Sack is an American artist who received his BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2011. His work explores architecture as a flexible medium capable of expressing the unique space between realism and abstraction; where interpretation and our ability to create meaning is in flux. Furnished with pen and ink, Sack encapsulates both the infinite and infinitesimal. His work invites the eye to gaze into a kaleidoscope of histories and to look further into the elemental world of lines and dots. (Robert Fontaine Gallery)
