These Days is pleased to announce Cowgirl Dental Floss, a solo presentation of new works by Heather Benjamin. Benjamin’s newest body of work begins the next chapter in her continuing diaristic mythology; an unrestrained episodic narrative which has spanned the artist’s career thus far, always starring an evolving protagonist, acting as an avatar for Benjamin herself. Embracing the impetus to explicitly use the personal in art, her characters play out the multiple facets of the artist’s psyche as she moves through the different phases of womanhood and explores her trauma. This most recent installment stars an untamed cowgirl on the run from those who have restrained her, and from past versions of herself.
