The rats in the monkey’s cage, 2011
At the Mumbai Zoo the star attraction is the rhesus monkeys, and because of this, the zoo management has given them the biggest cage proportionate to their size. They are fed the best by the zoo staff and the visitors who ignore the “Don’t Feed the Animals” sign. The monkeys hang on to the ropes and cling to the car tires tied to the bottom of the ropes.
If you throw some food onto the cage floor, the monkeys will lean down from the rope and stretch for the food. The rats lay in wait for the monkeys to leave their rope prisons and go for the food. They attack instantly and, all together, chase the foodless monkeys back up the rope or up the cage walls. Then you notice the bloodied bandages around the feet and hands of the monkeys, the faces of the monkeys that never sleep, and their stomachs that never get filled. The rats in India are the meanest in the world, and in the zoos they are the fattest. They bully all the animals in the zoo from the elephants to the lions.
This painting is about the many star attractions in the world which are really miserable and under the control of the rats under the surface.# zoos#3rdworldzoos#crueltytoanimals#monkeysandrats#ronaldfeldmangallery#australiangalleries#celebrities#fameinacage#celebrityinacage#redcarpet

Close-up of a section of Lauren Luloff’s amazing art work ‘Universe’ which she created using a special bleaching technique on sheets and fabric. You can check out several of her works at the Opening of Art2Cure in NYC on Tuesday May 22.
And it continues with more from #theoakestwins . Through the usage of concave gridded easels, these two Colorado-born twins could become a 21st century version of Brunelleschi. Zoom in to see the crazy details in this image of Time Passing Across Central Park!
Inventive and experimental. That's how I would describe #theoakestwins and their beautiful duomos. Sadly, the immersive nature of the piece can't be fully captured in a picture, but lucky for us, the details and bright colors of this landscape can.
Such a powerful and important exhibit currently on view @feldmangallery “VIOLATED! Women in Holocaust and Genocide”; which is “an exhibition of more than thirty international artists who present artistic representations of and reactions to sexual violence against women during the Holocaust, as well as later genocides”. | Muriel (Nezhnie) Helfman “Daughters of Auschwitz” 1979.
No, really, it’s a drawing. People are in awe when they see Scott Hunt’s drawings, which have so much depth and look so realistic that one easily mistakes them for photographs. Join us for the opening on May 22 to admire 4 of Scott’s masterpieces.
Visited Darryl @darrylwestly in his studio in Brooklyn last week. What a talented and interesting young artist he is. We are so glad to count him among this year’s line up of artists for Art2Cure NYC @feldmangallery !
We are excited and proud to announce our first Art2Cure exhibition in New York City at the Ronald Feldman Gallery. Over the next weeks we will introduce the Artists from New York and Luxembourg who are participating in this exhibit.
Thanks @artforum for visiting my show @feldmangallery . #Repost ・・・

In the centre of the picture there is a marriage cake, both bride and groom have already taken pieces out of the cake and replaced the pieces with other bits of cheaper cake to hide their theft. The couple walk down the aisle already missing pieces of themselves in an attempt to accommodate their partner. The bride’s leg is replaced by a bike wheel her arm is a crutch, the grooms head a rubbish bag.

‘When you lie you lose a bit of yourself and replace it with a bit of everyone else’, oil on linen, 60 x 72 inches.
When you go to a funeral or someone famous dies it is the custom to lie about the dead person and his/her life to the extent its no longer possible to identify the body. Even after death we live a lie.
A woman reads from a prepared eulogy, the mourners listening to it are trying to make sense of it and assemble the dead body is like trying to put together an IKEA table but they are confused by the contradictions and implausibility of the life they were hearing.
