Bubbles by Chris Mars for the 12×12 Group show. Runs until September 23rd.
“Self-taught” surrealist artist Chris Mars creates a voice for the voiceless; offers love to the unloved and mercy to the condemned and banished through his artwork. Pulling empathetic inspiration from a family history of mental illness, Mars visually reflects upon the cruel and tribal aspects of societal and human prejudices in his signature Neo-Grotesque style. Through his highly developed technical craft, he conceptually challenges preconceived judgment, be it one of beauty, hideousness or the nature of truth by tendency.
