As observed through Mark Whalen’s eyes, the world is a strange and curious place. His paintings, ceramics and sculpture explore darkly comic, elegant tableaux alive with futuristic mini-dramas. Sexual play, arm wrestling competitions, and ominous rituals are the norm. Potted plants, smiley faces, and scientific information vie for our attention: fences and dead-ends abound. He grants an endearing single-mindedness to his cookie-cutter beings in pursuit of their tiny barbarisms. In short, their bliss depends on staying “inside the box”. Whalen incorporates elements of decoration, graphic design and architectural rendering technique – props of our refined civilization – to comment on conventional social mores. For him, truth is to be found in looking beyond surfaces of cultural veneer to point out patterns of coercion and acquiescence. @mark__whalen

is an Australian-born, Los Angeles-based artist. Whalen expresses narratives that explore seemingly universal situations. In his recent series of sculptural and canvas works, he uses the figure, common objects and forms to capture, cordon and compartmentalise the distinctive characteristics of his figures as they shift under the weight of societal anxieties. Pictured is 'Double tangle', 2016, now showing in 'Spring' at the gallery until 20 October.
