DESCRIPTION

In this second one-person exhibit at MARC STRAUS, Paul Pretzer is even more rigorous and inventive. His images are interconnected to one another in subtle narrative strings and become something larger; a psychological rebus. A Pretzer painting contains humor and aversion. Its bizarre configurations evoke association and abstraction at once. Centrally fusing monkeys with eminent portrayals, the artist continuously sources the uncanny while pushing the boundaries of contemporary painting further. His work is always immediately recognizable. It is rude and irreverent, playful and beautiful.
