Benjamin Riley (b. 1966) makes minimalist, abstract drawings and paintings that are largely geometric. With a careful approach, he builds beds of color in shape through repeated application of line. He often creates self-portraits featuring a circular body and long linear arms and legs. Riley lives in Philadelphia, PA and has been working at the Center for Creative Works since 2018.
