Fran­cisco Ben­itez: Tem­pus Tem­po­ris

Pasatiempo - - RESTAURANT REVIEW -

2005, oil on can­vas

Phil Space, 1410 Sec­ond St., 505-983-7945 Fran­cisco Ben­itez draws on the com­po­si­tional styles and im­agery of clas­si­cal paint­ing to re­veal a con­tem­po­rary vi­sion. In his works, he ex­am­ines the con­trast be­tween so­ci­etal ideals of beauty and class and the harsh real­i­ties of so­cial fail­ures and ur­ban blight. Ben­itez is a re­cip­i­ent of a 2016 Mayor’s Arts Award. His ex­hi­bi­tion Aris­to­crats Among In­dus­trial Ruins opens with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion on Fri­day, Nov. 11.
