Internal Affairs | Lou Ferreri

Internal Affairs | Lou Ferreri

Artistry is excited to bring Lou Ferreri’s exhibition, INTERNAL AFFAIRS, to our Atrium Gallery.

The exhibition will be filled with his extravagant mixed-media drawings on the editorial pages of The New York Times. Initiated in 2010 as a continuing series, they elaborate on ordinary and extraordinary phenomena, physical preoccupations, anxieties, and observations regarding the details of everyday living. Influences for these daily drawings derive from news stories, op-eds, personal interactions, memory, history, intuition, or a previous night’s dream. Interspersed between the mixed-media drawings will be large charcoal drawings. Lou would work on four to five charcoal drawings at time allowing the music he would listen to drive him from one to another. In this exhibition you will not just see how his mind operates, but be able to dig into his thoughts by reading the many poems that will go along with his pieces.

About the Artist:

Lou Ferreri was raised in Brooklyn, New York. The door of his sixth-floor apartment was open to neighbors. Daily newspapers fostered grand debates around his kitchen table. Countless cups of coffee fueled the passions of adults committed to agreeing or disagreeing over local and world issues. Lou listened in awe. These formative years influenced his career commitment to narrative drawing.

As an optimistic traveler, he follows a path of curiosity beginning with a single drawn line. Influences derive from news stories, personal interactions, memory, history, intuition, or a previous night’s dream.
