Pandemic Gallery Presents
a solo show by Eddie Ochoa
- Eddie Ochoa “The See-Through Horse,” collage, 2010
A Texas native, Ochoa has previously exhibited at Fl!ght Gallery in San Antonio; since relocating to New York, Ochoa also participated in a group show at 21LUDLOW in the Lower East Side.
Amalgamation is the process of combining or uniting multiple entities into one form. Ochoa’s work does exactly that — his imagery draws from various mystical, religious and folklore traditions, and his method combines various media, including acrylic and watercolor paint, ink, and scrapbooking paper. These highly-detailed and multi-dimensional layered works draw the viewer into the many planes (both physical and imaginary) of Ochoa’s other-worldly dreamscapes. “Amalgamations” will also feature Ochoa’s drawings on tracing paper, thereby offering viewers a rare opportunity to gain understanding of an artist’s process simultaneous with the presentation of the finished works.
On Friday, August 27th, from 7pm to 11pm, Pandemic will host the “Amalgamations” opening reception, sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon. “Amalgamations” will then run from Saturday, August 28th through Saturday, September 18th.
Pandemic Gallery, established in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2009, is an artist-run space dedicated to showing work from up-and-coming, unknown, and well-established talent alike. Embracing (but not confined to) urban street art, Pandemic is attracted to artists who think outside the confines of conventional normalcy — artists whose fresh concepts and unique visions inspire a broad audience. Pandemic is open daily from 11am to 6pm, and is accessible via the L and J subways and the Q59 bus.
