MAC is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Mark Price, Joe Manuse and Justin Bursk.
Distinct Zones IV Mark Price
Mark Price’s collages are a jittery visual experience, a kind of rapid jump cut evocative of the pixelated breakdown of video imagery. He samples graphic design components into compositions whose language is a kind of latter day Futurism – the additive language of splicing and speed.
Stalling on Drops Joe Manuse
Joe Manuse anchors his paintings in a simple, raw gesturalism. The moments of painting and looking slow – opening up space for mediative, mystical reflection. Manuse’s paintings suspend the viewer in time and lets us linger there.
Boats Are Not Meant for Harbor Justin Bursk
Justin Bursk’s works are blatantly, playfully homemade. His work is the work of a tinkerer, exploring through doing. Where Price is rapid-fire crisp, and Manuse slow and poetic, Bursk is improvisatory, a series of “what-if” scenarios played out on his visual stage.
We’re pleased to bring the works of all three of these artists together for this show.
