Ben Weiner

Ben Weiner’s immaculately hyper-realistic canvases and films precisely capture the essence of their subject: paint itself.
“My process derives from my interest in medium specificity, a practice in which art analyzes the means of its own creation”.
“I am interested in the way a microscopic view allows a person an intimate knowledge of the workings of a subject, while simultaneously alienating them from their normal experience of that subject… the blobs of paint in my paintings appear alien and otherworldly, even though they depict the stuff from which they’re made.”

Home for the holidays, I was inspired to make a short film about the strange place I grew up, and how my feelings about it have changed over the years.

12-year-old girl denied weight-loss surgery for rare illness

NBC News: Surgery to remove a brain tumor two years ago has left a 12-year-old Texas girl with a heartbreaking condition that makes her gain massive amounts of weight — even though her body thinks it’s starving.

Doctors say a gastric bypass operation is the only thing that can help Alexis Shapiro, who is 4-foot-7 and weighs 198 pounds. But the U.S. military, which provides her family’s health insurance, says it won’t pay for the $50,000 weight-loss procedure because she’s too young.

Do you know how hard it is to maintain a relationship?


I am tired.

I am so tired of close minded people.
I am so tired of dealing with people.

I am tired of interacting with people.

I just want to be left alone.
