@mark__whalen 's 'Double Down', 2018 is now showing at the @ngvmelbourne in @flackstudio 's Rigg Design Prize installation. The work is a part of Whalen's recent totem series celebrating life's folly, found objects and everyday studio stockpiles. Whalen's first solo exhibition at the gallery will be in 2019. #markwhalen #riggdesignprize #sophiegannongallery
@mark__whalen at @edwinacorlettegallery as shared by @jgartadvisory . . . #markwhalen #edwinacorlettegallery #australiangallery #australiaart #losangelesartist #jgartadvisory #artadvisor #contemporaryart . . . Repost @jgartadvisory 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 @edwinacorlettegallery #markwhalen #edwinacorlettegallery #edwinacorlette @the_art_form

@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. #markwhalen #spring #sophiegannongallery
New work by me in a group show @sophiegannongallery opening on Tuesday. I wanted to make two pots vaguely representing “southern” and “northern” European architectural styles, with plants to match. The painting is one of my new ones with spray paint, gesso and oil stick on glue sized linen. Other artists in the show are #samcranstoun #camillehannah #laurajones #guymaestri #rosstaylor and #markwhalen

Mark Whalen’s @mark__whalen “Human Development” compiles a nice sampling of the artist’s colorful, surreal, geometric pieces from his 2009-2011 era. Printed in an edition of 1,000, the book is designed by Cleon Peterson @cleonpeterson and Jesselisa Moretti and published by ZERO+ Publishing. @zeropluspublishing I’ve included photos of some of my favorites, including “Botanics,” a sculpture from 2010 that features hand-sewn paper leaves. 🍂 I wish I could’ve seen these in person! . . #markwhalen #contemporaryart #humandevelopment #artbook #cleonpeterson #geometricart #fineart #surrealart #zeropluspublishing #supportlivingartists #killpixie #bulkhead72collection

The corner of my bedroom is now much more interesting, courtesy of Mark Whalen’s @mark__whalen “Do Not Disturb”. Made to look like a crumpled piece of paper that an artist might discard during the creative process, Mark brings new life into this piece by invoking geometric shapes and curious figures. The ceramic sculpture is hand built by slip cast and rests on a custom painted shelf - complete with drips - to round out this contemplative piece. By pushing himself to explore new mediums and narratives throughout his career, he is easily one of the most exciting artists working today. . . #markwhalen #donotdisturb #originalart #ceramics #ceramic #ceramicsculpture #sculpture #slipcast #contemporaryart #geometricart #triangles #trapezoid #supportlivingartists #bulkhead72collection

Super nice pieces on display in Brisbane at @edwinacorlettegallery by @mark__whalen . Colours are insane on these pieces, even better in person. Unfortunately it was only viewable for a single day, so if you missed it you won’t get another chance to see it. But these were fire 🔥 #art #markwhalen #sculpture #sculptureart #galleryart #edwinacorlettegallery #fortycollectorsclub

Mark Whalen’s SQUEEZE exhibition of new work opens at the gallery next week. Preview catalogues available on request. . . Whalen incorporates elements of 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. Those who research new ways of being – like his figures whose torches bravely light up territory outside the “box” – are the heroes.

- Creepin' round the town Tryin' to find the sound to make it tight - Να λέτε ψέματα στους εαυτούς σας και να πηγαίνετε για αυτά τα ποτά τα χαλαρά τα ήσυχα, από εκείνα που σε βρίσκει το πρωί. #MarkWhalen #ThingsYouDoToMe #friends #laughing #smiles #happy #girls #nightout #sunrise #Thessaloniki #skg
Solo show by @mark__whalen now on @arshamfieggallery @kith "Lately, I have been forming new relationships with my work. In this new series of 3D sculptures, I am manipulating the idea of the traditional totem and creating these playful compositions where I have been taking iconic everyday objects, interacting familiar shapes, ambiguous figures and celebrating them through a series of problem-solving constructions." - Mark Whalen, 2018. #markwhalen #art #artexhibition #artshow #kith #arshamfieggallery #sculpture #contemporaryart #artcollector #contemporaryartist #artcollection #artist #artnews
