Benthos is the aquatic zone where softer animals live at the seabed

Maslansky's grouping of works were produced within the last two years, continuing his examination of the sea and the unconscious as interchangeable stages of production. In them, recognizable and heretofore unknown forms arise through his attractions and repulsions,  intermingling into a jambalaya or allusions, metaphors and metonyms about shame, personae, and desire. Some works concretize, through help of talk therapy, into what Maslansky calls 'his inner parasitic voice,' at once organic and cold.  Another work makes conversation around the idea of our mammalian senses and their limitations; and others return to Maslansky's familiar preoccupation with sea animals, art history and his invented 'shame-eater' heads.
