You Should Go To John Felix Arnold III’s Triangle Magic

Oct 03, 2013 - Oct 31, 2013Littlefield, Brooklyn


"Triangle Magic" is John Felix Arnold III’s solo exhibition of mixed media work at Littlefield, a gallery and performance venue in Brooklyn. Opening Thursday October 3rd and running till Halloween, you do not want to miss this event, which is also part of the Gowanus Open Studios the last weekend of October. Now living in Oakland and a favorite around the Bay Area, Felix grew up in New York City and Durham, NC in the 80s and 90s, playing Warhammer and D&D, listening to rap and watching anime. Allowing life and times to influence him, he says he can’t help but make art. “It gives me the ability to live in my imagination and explore this multi-tiered way of looking at the world we live in and where we are headed.” The work in this new show builds upon his explosively creative world, “Unstoppable Tomorrow”. Each of his exhibitions are like volumes in the grander graphic narrative of an imaginative future looking back on itself. Beautifully crafted, the pieces in "Triangle Magic" are artifacts that have been found in an archeological site by historians and researchers 500 years into the future. Dig it.
