MASH is pleased to present MORPH, a collection of contemporary paintings and sculptures sharing the common theme of transformation.
Throughout art history, artists have intentionally distorted the human figure to create some of the most well known and impactful masterpieces. The featured works function together as both an acknowledgment of the historical trajectory of artists creating figurative works, and a deviation from the standard ideas of taste, pushing the boundaries and redesigning figuration as the artist imagines it to be. By contorting the figure, the artist advances the composition, generating the bizarre with the goal to lead the viewer through an open-ended story of emotional intensity and humor. Morph is an incautious attempt to capture the opposite of reality and provoke a challenging artistic appreciation.
Morph is comprised of local, national and international artists. Spotlight Erick Sandberg published on the cover of Hi-Fructose Magazine as well as a feature in Juxtapoz and Serge Serum with multiple interviews in magazines such Amadeus, Tunnel and Animals.
Morph serves as a foreshadow for the metamorphosis of Mash Gallery 2020 as we relaunch with a chic new look and increasingly powerful art.
