MAC is pleased to present MIRACLE GROW, viagra an exhibition of works by Josh Weiss and William Test.

Both artists construct imagery that traffics in narrative, recipe landscape, abstraction, entropy, memory, creation and destruction. The works in this show share maximal, overloaded, fecund qualities that manifest in different ways. In Weiss’s paintings this expresses itself as a kind of conversation between abstraction and organic growth run amok. A more explicit myth making process occurs in Test’s work – a cluttered realm of adolescent and occult imaginings of power and magic.

Josh Weiss is a Philadelphia area based painter. A Yale graduate, he has exhibited in Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Beijing, and is a member of the gallery collective Grizzly Grizzly in Philadelphia.
