The Gabba Gallery proudly presents Layers, four simultaneous solo exhibitions featuring artists Essi Zimm, Tōshee, Nicholas Bonamy,and Joey Feldman. The four distinct shows, curated by Jason Ostro, will be on view from March 12 to April 2.
Influenced by his graphic design background, Tōshee employs bold, vibrant elements to arrest the viewer’s gaze. His technique incorporates both additive and subtractive processes with paint, pencil, ink, epoxy, and stencils that come together to produce images reminiscent of Eastern art.
The work of Nicholas Bonamy reflects the many layers of contemporary life happening all at once. Actions, thoughts, and dreams are revealed differently from every distance as the viewer’s focus drifts from one perspective to another in an experience akin to daydreaming while driving.
Fun is what you feel when viewing the characters exposed in the exuberant artworks of Joey Feldman. His colorful use of mixed media and gestural marks, lines, and layers ultimately add up to an energetic portrait of the eccentricities revealed in a character.
"These artists are masters of their craft whose minds, bodies, and spirits are deeply engaged in the making of their work. The Gabba Gallery is the perfect multi-exhibition showcase to share these four tremendous talents with the world."
