California artist Mark Grotjahn's monumental exhibition Faces is a continuation of his exploration of the "simple geometric structure of eyes, nose, and mouth." These tactile paintings, a series of layers of built-up ropy lines of polychromatic color, reflect his return to color after his 2007 series of monochromatic Butterfly paintings. According to the press release .... "These new paintings demonstrate that the spirit of the face-wild, untamed, animalistic, free and limitless- motivates the artist's entire oeuvre."
Undoubtably, these nine extraordinarily beautiful paintings
reinforce Grotjahn's position as a major force
in the contemporary art world ......
They are fabulous!!!!
