Coming In May: Ben Tolman’s Fiction and more…

On 10, Apr 2014 | In Exhibitions, Uncategorized | By tfdcadmin

benweb

Main Gallery:  May 3 – June 1, 2014
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 3, 7-11pm
Closing Reception Friday, May 30, 7-10pm

You’re invited to see a series of 40 new artworks from DC-based artist Ben Tolman. For these pieces, the artist plays on the view that, through the lens of human perspective, nothing in our found environment and relationships may contain absolute truth.

Nostalgia for video games, movies and television; real-world events such as Pussy Riot performances; and surreal scenarios like a Terry Gilliam-style disembodied hand squishing an onlooker weave through pieces that simultaneously exemplify situations with rich meaning and meaningless happenstance.

The series presents a mythology that is rich and dynamic, while the stripped down minimalism in each piece allows storylines to breathe and develop in a way never experienced in Tolman’s artworks past.

Fiction will be on view May 3 – June 1, 2014.
