Opening with a reception on February 9th, Mark Price's solo exhibition Hyper 20XX offers a technicolor mash-up of media and message in a new collection of works on paper.
In a series of meticulously-cut and color-saturated collages incorporating screenprinting, painting and photography, Price depicts multiple moments as single frames stuck in an endless loop. His stark, geometric backgrounds are cut with razor-sharp color fields and cryptic, stuttering text. Speaking to our deep-seated fears of groundlessness and change, Price offers compelling, day-glow-colored warnings of a shattered future.
Price's work recalls theories on media, technology and speed advanced by writers such as Marshall McLuhan and Paul Virilio. In the exhibition catalogue, Maxwell Neely-Cohen describes Price's work as "an invitation to traverse through territories of accelerating obsolescence, cities and lands both known and unknown."
30-year-old artist Mark Price was born in Detroit; he lives and works in Philadelphia. He has been represented by Kesting/Ray for four years and Hyper 20XX is his second solo exhibition. He is a member of the Philadelphia-based arts collective Space 1026 and produces the popular "Zine of the Month" project.
