Thanks for your interest in Space 1206.

Jungleland is an exhibition of paintings,
drawings, sculpture and site-specific installations by artists MATT LEINES, WILLIAM BUZZELL, ALEX LUKAS, JOE BUZZELL . The four friends use themes
from the seminal Bruce Springsteen song “Jungleland” to present their unique
artistic visions. Psychedelic imagery, post apocalyptic landscapes,
vignettes of teenage rebellion, and scenes of mythical gods come together to
create a one of a kind world that can only be experienced down In
Jungleland. The show opens April 6th and runs through April 27th, the
opening party is Friday, April 6th.

Space 1026 is excited to host these four artists in Philadelphia.

With his crisp, meticulous pen and ink and lush, multilayered watercolor, Matt Leines initiates us into the geometry of the future. Through a secret society of humanoid creatures, anthropomorphized nature and mythological adornment
Leines reveals a depth of feeling in his at times confrontational drawings.

Using house paint & shoe dye on plastic tarps, found wood & scrap metal,
William Buzzells’ work continues his exploration into the themes of
patriotism, race, heritage, class and the shaping of identity in the modern
world. William is a member of the Philadelphia art collective, Space 1026.

Alex Lukas’ drawings and sculptures depict destruction, desolation and the
hypnotic power of smoke in the wake of an un-specified disaster.

Joe Buzzell’s artwork loiters outside an Exxon gas
station at the cross section of Sacred Geometry and Fake Puke, smoking
cigarettes and eating shitty hot dogs.
