DESCRIPTION

Michael Mararian's "Recent Projects", is a collection of revolving concepts and ideas that I have been exploring for the last year and a half.    With a continued focus on combining pathos, humor, shock value and the absurd, this show brings new areas of exploration in both technique and attitude.  Most of the work being shown is in full color (a first forthe artist) as well as using found vintage books, magazines and ephemera as a re-purposed canvas in a majority of the new work.    His phobia series from 2008 is also revisited in full color and we get a glimpse into the beginnings of some upcoming series such as  "Over Stimu-lie", "Horrible Gifts for Children" and a contemporary re-imagining of Edward Gorey's "The Ghastlycrumb Tinies"
