> DESCRIPTION

Viewing Corridor

At the point where long-held beliefs fall into decline and once-esteemed notions crumble, questions arise about those belief systems. It is at this point that John-Mark Ikeda begins his exploration of the current economic climate. Ikeda deconstructs the iconic business suit — which he equates with the failed economy — stripping it down to its component parts and pinning it to the wall like a specimen, with accompanying business accessories, in an attempt to reconstitute it as a symbol of power.


John-Mark Ikeda is a San Francisco-based artist. He works in a variety of mediums including printmaking, video, digital photography, installation, and augmented reality. He holds an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and a BA from Bowdoin College. Ikeda is the co-recipient of the Bronze Roller Award and the Richard P. Martel Award. He is currently a studio artist at Root Division, located in San Francisco’s Mission District.
