Lennie Mace’s “Pen Pal” at 111 Minna

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Currently based in Japan, American artist Lennie Mace creates intricate ballpoint pen drawings, or “PENtings,” as he refers to them, rendering intricate worlds on paper, wood panels and tapestries with this detail-oriented medium. Mace has a solo show titled “Pen Pal” on display at 111 Minna Gallery which comes to a close on October 27. Some of the works in the show are at an impressive mural scale, with a myriad surreal characters spread across the canvas, while other smaller works focus on single subjects. Mace borrows the format of digital media and newspapers (which he mimics by hand), pixelating his characters or embedding them in text. Take a look at some photos from the show we snapped during Kelly Allen, Xiau-Fong Wee and Melissa Arendt’s “Corporeal Clusters” opening in the gallery’s other room last weekend.
