Ben now teaches Oil and Acrylic Painting, Drawing, 2-D Design, and Color Theory at Yavapai College’s Verde Valley Campus in Clarkdale, AZ.

Currently, his work embodies an investigation into the network of agency shared by humans and objects and the b-norton_3_deborah-2016-oil-on-canvas-36-x-48multiplicity of narratives that arise as a result. His work also explores the parameters of painting in the realm of the art-object and the implications of physical forms of memory within constructed space.
