1. On View: Mark Whalen’s “Stranded” at Merry Karnowsky Gallery

    by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on April 30, 2014

    Known for his glossy, resin-coated paintings of geometrically-designed worlds populated by tiny homunculi, Mark Whalen currently has a show up at Merry Karnowsky Gallery titled “Stranded.” While Whalen’s work typically looks like a documentation of a strange, pixelated civilization tinged with ’80s nostalgia (Rubik’s Cube and retro video games, anyone?), his new body of work takes this notion further with ceramic vessels that look like they emerged from Whalen’s painted worlds. An interesting extension of Whalen’s vision, the ceramic sculptures serve as artifacts of the strange society he depicts. Earlier we gave you a look at Whalen creating these pieces in his studio, and today we bring you an overview of the whole exhibition before it comes down on May 3.
