Our Shared Past: Highlight on Mark George

Mar

11

Written by Nicole Gaudier 

Mark George ‘s work Bobbing  will be in the Our Shared Past exhibition, on view in the Stein Gallery from December 17, 2013 to May 25, 2014.

A statement from Mark George:

“Mark George’s paintings of love, anguish and anxiety spare no emotion, and bare no subliminal message.George’s work demonstrates his commercial art background, graphic design, and the idea of painting.With no visible brushstrokes, the pieces have a flat color quality seen primarily in printed work.

The paintings on the torn panels are an attempt to embody an era of mid-century Americana in advertising and urban street art. The material gives the work an abandoned quality that suggests the piece is not a painting per se, but a relic or illustrative portion of an old billboard or advertisement. The look created is genre crossing: a Dada approach, a Pop sensibility.”
