Each work of art Ben Edwards creates, its scale, textures, and material composition is originated by the discovery of found materials. An insatiable recycler and scavenger, the foundation of his practice involves using materials that have lived at least one life, including found recycling found artworks and his own creations. In the tradition of Rauschenberg, the materials he sources come from his local community, and the techniques he uses are based upon traditional craft and DIY methods, like woodworking, quilting, and cooking learned from a queer life lived on a tiny budget in Arkansas. He is also an artist who uses the body as medium in live performance.
