Inspired by human interactions Mark Whalen paints using both ancient and modern techniques. His intricate figures and hypnotizing use of patterns sing under a layer of resin that creates a slick window into strange parallel worlds. In his ambitious 2010 solo exhibition “Paralleled Opposites” at Merry Karnowsky Gallery, Mark designed a large cube to house an installation that featured an intricately stitched paper sculpture, as well as the sonic artistry of Carla Azar.
