This Saturday October 13, Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles will open two solo shows, “Portals” by Mark Whalen and “Stuck on a Wave” by Mel Kadel. Compositionally similar, the two artists create busy mixed-media works filled with minuscule figures that seem to inhabit obstacle-filled mini universes of their own. While Whalen’s paintings create a sci-fi ambiance with their glowing color palettes, Mel Kadel’s drawings with collage elements have a more folk art-inspired appeal. Take a look at some preview images of the work and teaser photos by Theonepointeight.
