PTOLEMY - Solo Show at Bottleneck Gallery

bng-show.PNG

Life is about creation and destruction. The juxtaposition of discovery and revelation is critical to one’s success and awareness of self. It is with this in mind that LA based artist Joey Feldman invades NYC and Bottleneck Gallery to present for our viewing pleasure his upcoming show, Ptolemy.

Feldman’s eclectic style and emotional renderings demonstrate an artist’s journey of self-discovery in a truly unique presentation of his work. Much like Claudius Ptolemy presented his monumental arrangement of 48 Constellations with the Earth being at the center of his universe, Feldman presents us with 48 original works with his life at the focus. The 48 panels in full glory represent his journey; his origins and exploration of existence. Light to darkness, and for better or worse Joey shows us an incredibly personal and autobiographical arrangement of pieces.

Attendees should prepare themselves for a full range of emotional and intellectual stimulation. If you’ve ever wondered what it is like to be a fly on the wall in the world of Joey Feldman; this is the show for you. In addition to the 48 panels, there will be show specific prints and variants available to purchase. Each panel was photographed and digitally sewn together to make two sets of gorgeous prints.

Joey will be in attendance for folks to pick his brains and see what makes him tick. Plus, he will be around to doodle prints! The exhibition opens Friday, April 26th from 7P - 9P eastern. Admission and drinks are FREE.
