For Immediate Release
AG Gallery/About Glamour in Williamsburg is pleased to present a group exhibition, "UNTITLED ANIMALS," by emerging artists from all over the US, Zlatka Paneva, Jon Carling, and Erin & Nicholas. All the works in this exhibition have some connections with animals around us and those in our imaginary world.
Even before we understood that human is a member of Mammalia like other animals, or we knew "the classification of living things" which was initially done by Aristotle in BC, we have been living with other animals for a long long time. As a farm animal, as a provision, as a means of transportation, as a worker, and as a friend, we live together with many kinds of animals every day.
Animals are treated as a perfectly eternal motif in the creation of art because they are the most closest mystery for us and we love them whether we want to or not. In this exhibition, all those three artists are working in different region and on absolutely different media though, have some kinds of sympathy to real and imaginary animals existing in this world.

"I really don't limit myself to any particular subject matter or influence...I try and smash as many ideas into my work as possible...equally interpreting the way i saw life as a child and the way I see life today. Pen and ink is just what I have always done, its great because you don't pay much for supplies, and you can do it in bed." ~ Jon Carling
Erin & Nicholas
They started creating these prints on this exhibition as an outlet from our other jobs. This is a fun project that allows them to work together as a couple on a design project where we set all the guidelines. Each printed is printed on 100 lb archival paper with archival ink.

“My art is a cocktail of reality, sources and imagination, infused with elegance and a sense of humor... In my art, I always love to twist ideas, forms or meanings of things.” ~ Zlatka Paneva
