Heather Marx Gallery

Since 2001 the Heather Marx Gallery has represented contemporary emerging artists such as Michael Arcega and Libby Black who are working in a range of media including painting, drawing, installation and photography. Within their intimate space they mount ten solo and group exhibitions per year, often working with outside writers and curators as well as other galleries and museums.

Histories (December 15, 2005 - January 28, 2006) features paintings and mixed-media works by Michael Hall, Erik Sandberg and Maki Tamura. Each artist draws from art historical sources, imagery and styles to create pieces that are entirely unique, visually stunning, and yet strangely familiar. The work possesses nuanced narratives to suggest social, cultural and historical criticism. Tamura's large-scale mixed media works on linen are inspired equally by "ukiyo" Japanese woodblock prints, Hello Kitty and 18th-century French landscape painting. Hall's paintings and drawings are dense composites of imagery -- antiquated drawings of Roman ruins, ships, flora and fauna -- combined with contemporary elements and enigmatic objects. Sandberg's small paintings, meticulously detailed in the style of 16th-century Northern Renaissance (think: Bruegel) portray varying states of the human condition.
