Openings: Mark Flood – “Mark Fluid” @ Zach Feuer

During a hectic Armory Week, AM made time to catch the artist reception for Mark Flood’s and check out his latest series of work, entitled Mark Fluid, at the Zach Feuer gallery. It’s pretty amazing how in his signature paintings, he takes simple canvases and renders them so that it seems to have delicate lacing material coming out from it.

Preview: Mark Flood @ Peres Projects – Basel Week Switzerland (Liste)

Mark Flood is a Texan who produces work that mocks popular American culture and the contemporary art world. His signs on cardboard poke fun at the prestige that culture places on paintings, with such messages as “Another Painting” or “25 More Paintings.” His collages of mutated celebrity portraits challenge people’s perceptions of their relationship with “celebrity” – are you interested in the person themselves or their image as depicted in the poster? How is the feedback to your head affected when that picture is tweaked? […]
