One of my favorite artists, Mark Mulhern, has show of his work opening soon in Milwaukee. Tory Folliard Gallery, in the historic third ward of Milwaukee, will be holding an opening reception for Mark on Friday September 12 from 5 to 7:30pm. Mark is a life long painter and print-maker and I have found his work beautiful and profound for years. His long term commitment to painting shows itself in large paintings that are skillful, quirky and gorgeously colored. The paintings and prints straddle both representation and abstraction simultaneously. His new work continues his exploration of some of his favorite themes, domesticity, household objects, and public spaces filled with people. The photos below of photos of some of his newest work. Try to make the show if you can.
