· 26 Jay Street, Dumbo NY 11201

Each piece represents a section of the totem. Each totem represents a process. Each process is a transition. Betsey Lee and Yulia Topchiy of CoWorker Projects are pleased to present Totem, an exhibition featuring new photography by Adam Ianniello and sculpture by David Alexander Flinn. Please join us for the opening on December 13th, 2013 from 6PM to 10PM at Betsey Lee Studios, located at 26 Jay Street in Dumbo. The exhibition will be on view until January 30th, 2014.

Adam Ianniello was born in 1987 in Brooklyn, New York. Through experimentation with analog photography, his work explores themes of ritual, alchemy, and mysticism. Each piece is the result of an effort to project an internal world onto a physical landscape. His latest work breaks down the photographic process into a tactile subject. Adam studied Art History at Baruch College and has exhibited in New York and London. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. For more information on Adam Ianniello please visit his website.

David Alexander Flinn was born in 1987 in New York City. His work explores the notions of our primordial instincts of survival and the confinement of such by social infrastructures, these concepts often intermingle ideas ranging from botany to the fall of the Roman Empire. Violence, repression, betrayal and resurrection play an integral role in his language. He utilizes sculpture, installations, drawing and photographs to explore these concepts. He has a BFA from the School of Visual Arts ands exhibited in New York and Italy. He lives in Manhattan, works in Greenport, Long Island and has been represented by Envoy Enterprises since 2009.
