Did Yoo See the Exhibition of the Chunky Floors? Work by Marc Bell

About this exhibition

This exhibition features approximately fifty drawings, mixed media collages, and constructions as well as an improvised high-wall wall installation of an assortment of “scraps” and ephemera used to inspire and create Marc Bell’s intricate collage work. This exhibition coincides with the release of his art/comic monograph Hot Potatoe [sic] published by Drawn and Quarterly that highlights Bell’s works from this decade.

With associations in both the comics and as Bell calls it “Fine Aht” worlds, he works both mediums in tandem, manifesting a paste-up universe of watercolor drawings, mixed-media cardboard constructions, altered found texts, comics, and any combination of the above. His wildly imaginative visual language is equal parts cartoon and cubism, laced with content that is wry, irreverent, and real.
