We have nothing but crazy love for the new works by Mark Bettis at the gallery. I hope this last blog post gets everyone excited for the opening of “Get Lost” tomorrow night from 5-8pm—we sure are and can’t wait to see you. The last work we are featuring is “Crazy Love”…care to take a guess why?
“Crazy Love” is a giant, stunning example of Bettis’ creativity and passion. It is extreme with bright, neon orange and teal patterns and sweeping rings that simultaneously invoke sentiments of unity and frenzy. “Crazy Love” is also subtle, with the under layers oozing through like ghosts from the past.
There is a raw quality in “Crazy Love” that I talked about in the last post that make Bettis’ work urban and uncut. The texture of the works, which stems from his unconventional usage of cold wax gives the works an added layer of sensory stimulation. Bettis’ works are a departure for our gallery, but we thought it was about time to stir things up with a little mixed-media love.
Don’t miss a chance to meet Mark Bettis tomorrow night from 5-8pm at the opening of “Get Lost.”
