Initial Offering: O Uncolored People Limited-Edition Pigment Prints by Mark Mann

uncolored_email.jpg

Mark Mann Studio is pleased to offer two images from a group of original paintings entitled O Uncolored People as limited-edition pigment prints. This ongoing series depicts burnt sunbathers as a means to express a side of the American character weary from excess and leisure and instilled with a dark sense humor. Each painting's title is based on popular boys and girls names from 1930s Social Security records, meant to reference an older generation— tough, stoic, but now questioning their status. My goal is to bring qualities of both the strange and sentimental in these pictures—in much the same way the most miserable of vacations can, over time, become the fondest of memories.

All prints are 14 x 14" image size and 16 x 16" paper size on Innova Soft White Cotton. Edition of 10 and 2 artist proofs at $100 each, unframed plus shipping/handling. The giclee printing process is guaranteed by the manufacturers of the ink and the paper to make archival prints capable of lasting more than 100 years.

TRESTLE GALLERY: SMALL WORKS GROUP EXHIBITION by Mark Mann

O Uncolored People, Geraldine, 2015

Opening Reception: Thursday, June 30th 7-9pm
On view through August 4th, 2016

“Looking through one thousand images was a dream-come-true, until I had to eliminate well over 900 of them. This was not my first time at the rodeo, but editing, shaping, and finalizing an exhibition is never an easy process. So many works have merit and any exhibition can take countless directions. Many of the artists who received rejections had several works flagged until the final round, when imagery, themes, and techniques began to appear in dialogue, taking me in a direction I had not previously anticipated. There is no overarching theme aside from the fact that the pieces spoke to me and began to speak to each other after countless rounds of viewing. In the end, I chose works that made me ask questions, look at media, read titles, and want to know more. I longed to see them in person and they begged to hang next to one another.”

Greenpoint Open Studios April 29- May 1 by Mark Mann

Hey friends! Less than a week until the start of Greenpoint Open Studios April 29- May 1. As a relative newcomer to the Greenpoint art community I'm very excited to be participating in my first GOS event and invite you to join me for a visit to view paintings and sculptural work I've been focused on over the past year, as well as enjoy all the neighborhood has to offer.

Over 300 artists will make their creative spaces open to the public, and aside from my own space, I highly recommend visiting with my studio mates here at Calico, 67 West Street, #203 -Michael Hambouz, Scott Chassé, Kate Nielsen and Tom Henry. Lots of great art to experience, so do your eyes a favor.
