Nedko Solakov's Fears is a series of 99 drawings, each one fleshing out an anxiety extracted from modern life -- whether real or imagined, dark or droll -- minutely hand-drawn and captioned in the artist's signature self-deprecating style. Nedko Solakov: 99 Fears will include the full series of drawings accompanied by an introduction by critic Suzaan Boettger placing them in the context of the artist's prior work and connecting them to other representations of fear in art history.
