Selma Feriani Galley Presents Amel Bennys "Underground" at Volta NY

French-Tunisian artist Amel Bennys' work is beautiful and mysterious. In her first year in New York she went about capturing the subway in photographs, while contemplating is functionality and complex structure. "The New York Subway look to me like Roman remains, a hidden underground  ancestral lost city" she describes. I was lucky to have the opportunity to collaborate with Amel and help bring these mysterious images to life, printed large scale on matte canvas, which she later worked on top of with paint and pastel.
