Mark Moore Gallery proudly presents < strong>"Fall Out\," an inaugural solo exhibition of paint ings by San Francisco-based artist\, Andrew Schoultz. In t his exhibition\, Schoultz translates the motifs in his kinetic two-dimensio nal works into a real scale three-dimensional installation – presenting an interrelated combination of painting\, sculpture\, drawing\, and collage. R eferencing the social constructions and implications of a public civic cent er\, museum\, or church\, Schoultz invites the viewer be seated on his hand crafted benches\, and be immersed in the ramifications of our contemporaneo us globalization.


Sourcing aesthetic inspiration from 15th Century German map making and Indian miniature paintings\, Andrew Scho ultz's frenetic imagery depicts an ephemeral history bound to repeat itself . In his mixed-media works\, notions of war\, spirituality and sociopolitic al imperialism are reoccurring themes\, which shrewdly parallel an equally repetitive contemporary pursuit of accumulation and power. "Fall Out" prima rily investigates the notion of the monumental\, both in its commemorative personification of power structures\, and the increasingly prodigious conse quences of our egocentric consumption. In these works\, undulating bodies o f water recall the devastating realities of global warming\, while American flags stamped with the ubiquitous "Made in China" inscription question our domestic authenticity. Schoultz facilitates a dialogue that is both topica l and ageless\, and prompts the viewer to navigate a physical and visual sp ace suggestive of our cyclical parochialism. While his illustrated world se ems one of chaos and frenzy\, Schoultz also implies a sense of alluring fan tasy and whimsy - a crossroads vaguely reminiscent of the modern world.
