Mark Mulroney at Mixed Greens Gallery – NYC

Posted on 04 January 2009

Mixed Greens is elated to announce their third exhibition with Mark Mulroney. This time, he uses collage, drawing, painting, sound, and sculpture to expose the viewer to a fascinating, interconnected universe of religious and scatological thought.  In Follow the Nosebleeds, Mulroney re-imagines Mixed Greens as a more intimate, studio-like space. He divides the gallery with constructions, furniture, and partitions all made of cardboard (loosely based on the haunted houses he built with his brothers as a child). In this setting, mixed media and diverse content inspire active participation by the viewer. Mulroney’s ever-changing imaginary world is a recollection of stories that, to him, reflect traditional American life. His formative experiences as an alter boy, his love of Polaroid pictures, and his grandmother’s wish to attend as many Padres’ games as possible, all combine to create artwork that conveys his unique perspective. Viewers encounter works as varied as large-scale ink drawings of religious figures, Rembrandt etchings, cowboys and nude women; paintings with familiar compositions inspired by a Kodak manual on how to take a good picture; books and pamphlets containing sketches and musings; and even Dolly Parton, ready to tell their fortunes.
