Always one to play off of the complexities within our DNA\, Schorr has once again delved into the intricate world evolution\, or lack t hereof\, as the case may often times be\, by exploring the Modern vs. Primi tive behavioral dichotomy that makes up our present human condition. It is a topic often approached by the artist\, questioning how we can be so techn ologically advanced in certain areas\, yet sinking back into primitive beha viors when relating to the world and each other.

\n

Painting with mast erly technique influenced by the likes of Bruegel\, Dali\, Bosch and Parris h\, the painterly labors of the artist continue to overwhelm with amazing d etail and impressive scale – both large and small. With tongue-in-cheek per fection\, Todd pokes a finger of warning at the creeping decay of our moder n society and our collective moral compass.

Of his new body of work \, Neverlasting Miracles\, Todd says:

\n

“In a way my paintings are like an animated cartoon that has been frozen into one frame with all the clues to its storyline present somewhere within the composition.  Generally speaking all of my paintings do follow a narrative that’s up to the interp retation of the viewer to solve. The challenge is to be able to engage the viewer through the use of arresting subject matter and a dynamic compositio n that will lead them through a scenario that is hopefully powerful and tho ught provoking.

\n


The many varied and amusing complexit ies of human behavior continue as avenues of exploration in my latest group of paintings.  The genome of our kissing cousins\, the Neanderthal\, has b een decoded and they are alive and well and swimming within our modern day genetic lottery. Narcissism has reached an all time high as aesthetically c hallenged physicians in the plastic surgery arts continue on their frantic quest to enhance and beautify. It won’t be long before Father Time himself will be opting for his own nip and tuck. These thoughts and more are given full reign across generous fields of colorfully pigmented canvas.  My new w orks seek to entertain while at the same time provide the viewer with tasty morsels of contemplative thought.”
