Mr Ed

MARK BENNETT, Home of Wilbur & Carol Post (Mr. Ed), 2017, Lithograph on Rives BFK paper, 24 x 36 inches (Edition of 10) 

We have just a few of these works remaining, so please give this work your most serious consideration at this time.

Mister Ed is an American television sitcom produced by Filmways which originally aired in syndication from January 5 to July 2, 1961, and then on CBS from October 1, 1961, to February 6, 1966. The show’s title character – a talking horse – originally appeared in short stories by Walter R. Brooks.

Mark Bennett‘s (b. 1956, Tennessee) whimsical works engage with pop culture and celebrity to an extreme degree. His blueprint lithographs of Baby Boom era sitcoms and popular television series depict the ultimate pairing of flight of fancy and stoical logic; the purely imaginary floor plans grounded by the dry format of an architect’s design. His works are both pleasingly nostalgic and vaguely disconcerting in their premonition of a society obsessed by television and celebrity culture.

For the past 25 years, Los Angeles-based artist Mark Bennett has made art firmly rooted in the collective American experience of television. His drawings and lithographs are “blueprints” of famous television houses from such classic sitcoms as The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Brady Bunch, and Perry Mason. Drawing these fictional dwellings from memory, Bennett documents the minutiae of the characters’ lives by constructing their environments with a painstaking level of detail. His floor plans narrate the American Dream, charting not only the architecture, but also the subtext of our culturally accepted models for living.

Daniel Canogar “Mirrors” – On View Now

canogar-Ripple_2

You can view “Mirrors” – the exclusive ARTSY online exhibition of the works of Daniel Canogar – now at the following link: 

https://www.artsy.net/show/mark-moore-fine-art-daniel-canogar-mirrors

The exhibition will include alternate views of these works, all particulars, in addition to all pricing information.

Born in Madrid (1964) to a Spanish and an American mother, DANIEL CANOGAR´s life and career have bridged between Spain and the U.S. Photography was his earliest medium of choice, but he soon became interested in the possibilities of the projected image and installation art. His fascination with the technological history of optical devices, such as magic lanterns, panoramas and zoetropes, inspired him to create his own projection devices. Fox example, in the late 90s he created a multi-projection system with fiber optic cables. The resulting artworks were mobile-like hanging sculptures that projected images onto surrounding walls.

With the advent of digital technology, the artist continued re-conceptualizing visual media as sculpture. By projecting video animations onto salvaged obsolete electronics, he was able to metaphorically reveal the collective dreames trapped within DVDs, old calculators, video-game consoles or found computer hard drives. Also notable are Canogar´s public artworks using flexible LED screens. Like with his earlier fiber optic cable installations, he once again reinvents an existing technology to suit his artistic explorations; by using flexible LED tiles, he is able to create twisting ribbon-like screens for atriums and public spaces.

He has created numerous public art pieces, including Tendril, a permanent sculptural LED screen for Tampa International Airport; Travesías, a sculptural LED screen commissioned for the atrium of the European Union Council in Brussels; Constelaciones, the largest photo-mosaic in Europe created for two pedestrian bridges over the Manzanares River, Madrid; and Asalto, a video-projection presented on various emblematic monuments including the Arcos de Lapa in Rio de Janeiro, Union Station in Toronto, Puerta de Alcalá in Madrid and ths church of San Pietro in Montorio in Rome.

His recent work includes “Fluctuations” at Sala Alcalá 31, Madrid; Storming Times Square, screened on 47 of the LED billboards in Times Square, New York; “Echo”, a solo exhibition at bitforms, New York, and Max Estrella Gallery in Madrid; “Vórtices”, an exhibition exploring issues of water and sustainability at the Fundación Canal Isabel II in Madrid and Synaptic Passage, an installation commissioned for the exhibition “Brain: The Inside Story” at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

Daniel Canogar received an M.A. from NYU ant the International Center for photography in 1990. He presently lives and works in Madrid and New York City.

Opening Thursday: “Amy Elkins: Photographs of Contemporary Masculinity” at the Frank M. Doyle Arts Pavilion

Orange Coast College

2701 Fairview Rd, Costa Mesa, CA 92626-5563

Amy Elkins’ first survey of photographs and first solo exhibition in the Western States, approaches various subjects such as male athleticism, whether as dancers or rugby players, as well as men serving life and death row sentences, as a way of exploring the many facets of male identity, masculinity, and vulnerability.

Amy Elkins (b. 1979 Venice, CA) is a photographer currently based in the Greater Los Angeles area.  She received her BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She has been exhibited and published both nationally and internationally, including at The High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA; Kunsthalle Wien in Vienna, Austria; the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, AZ; the Minneapolis Institute of Arts; North Carolina Museum of Art; Light Work Gallery in Syracuse, Aperture Gallery and Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York, De Soto Gallery in Los Angeles, the Houston Center for Photography in Houston, TX among others. Elkins has been awarded The Lightwork Artist-in-Residence in Syracuse, NY in 2011, the Villa Waldberta International Artist-in-Residence in Munich, Germany in 2012, the Aperture Prize and the Latitude Artist-in-Residence in 2014 and The Peter S. Reed Foundation Grant in 2015.

Elkins’ first book Black is the Day, Black is the Night won the 2017 Lucie Independent Book Award.  It was Shortlisted for the 2017 Mack First Book Award and the 2016 Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation Photobook Prize as well as listed as one of the Best Photobooks of 2016 by TIME, Humble Arts Foundation, Photobook Store Magazine and Photo-Eye among others.

Her work stems out of an exploration of masculinity and male identity often within constructed or impermanent environments.  Elkins’ earlier work, Wallflower (2004-2008), looks into the nuances of gender identity, vulnerability and the female gaze.  She later went on to investigate aspects of male identity and athleticism through projects Elegant Violence (2010),  where she documented young Ivy League rugby players moments after a game and Danseur (2012), looking to young male ballet dancers moments after intensive training.   In 2016 Elkins returned to the Wallflower portrait.  Though unlike the original series, which aimed the lens at cisgender men almost entirely photographed within her personal space, Wallflower II explores a much broader sense of masculine identity- shot in the personal space of strangers in urban and rural Georgia upon first meeting and found through online calls / searches surrounding ideas of masculinity and gender in the American South. The work aims to confront socially constructed ideas and standards surrounding both gender and masculinity, vulnerability and beauty.

The Frank M. Doyle Arts Pavilion presents transformative experiences through the arts by focusing on contemporary visual culture and creates dynamic programming that inspires interaction and dialogue between artists, students, scholars, and local and international communities, and offers free admission in order to make these experiences accessible for everyone.

Daniel Canogar “Ooze” Featured in “Mirrors” at Mark Moore Fine Art

DANIEL CANOGAROoze“, 2018, Liquid crystal display, metal structure, computer / Dimensions: 106 x 181cm

Nasdaq (National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation) is an electronic and automated stock market, in which the securities of companies related to cutting-edge technologies are quoted. The work Ooze shows a generative animation created with the logos of the more than one hundred companies that make up the fund. The vertical movement of the animation faithfully reflects the ascending or descending market value of the companies, updated every ten seconds.
Ooze’s color palette is created with the logos of the companies that are part of Nasdaq. These logos appear liquefied, dissolving their bold designs into a hodgepodge of bright colors, which can momentarly be identified with the “data reveal” button. Being a generative work that never repeats, Ooze tries to capture the incessant flow of financial information that affects us in more ways than we can imagine.

Artists’ books occupy a creative space between traditional books and contemporary works of art, challenging what a book can be. This highly visual and experiential presentation of some of the most lively and surprising works from the Research Institute’s extensive collections focuses on artists’ books that can be unpacked, unfolded, unfurled, or disassembled. They are made to be displayed on the wall or deployed as sculptures or installations. The exhibition seeks to provoke new inquiry into the nature of art and to highlight the essential role that books play in contemporary culture.

Christopher Russell (American, born 1974) begins with inkjet prints of landscapes, into which he etches intricate patterns and figures with a razorblade, transforming the photographs into layered narratives. Rather than destroying the image, his controlled, methodical process of scratching the surface adds layers of density and mystery to already enigmatic images that may capture sun glare, dense foliage, or repetitive pattern. Russell also engages in an active practice of writing and creating unique artist books and zines with psychological, folkloric undertones; photographic works connected to these texts acquire the status of hazy memories or dreamlike landscapes.
