Ben Tolman’s first solo exhibition with gallery neptune & brown showcases his most recent drawings in ink and gouache on paper. WELTSCHMERZ translates from German to “world pain.” Tolman captures and recreates this overwhelming feeling that currently affects much of the United States and the world. In the tradition of Hieronymus Bosch and M.C. Escher, Tolman delves in to the fantastic imagery of impossible chaos.
