MARTY SCHNAPF at MUSEUM as RETAIL SPACE

Marty Schnapf is a really talented artist in Los Angeles and has a solo show opening this weekend at MUSEUM as RETAIL SPACE gallery in DTLA. I was fortunate to visit his studio last year and was blown away by a disco/rave sculptural installation and his paintings… You just have to see them in person…he’s already an artstar and I’m really looking forward to this show opening on Saturday night!

THE NIGHT BRIGHTENS • AN EXHIBITION BY MARTY SCHNAPF • JANUARY 9TH – MARCH 5TH, 2016

Museum as Retail Space (MaRS) is pleased to present The Night Brightens, a solo exhibition by Marty Schnapf. The exhibition will feature bronze sculptures, oil paintings and drawings.

A cursory read of Schnapf’s works might lead one to see them as portents of eschatological cataclysm. In actuality they operate in a modality of synchronicity – a receptivity to the semiotic emergence of coincident events and atemporal perspectives.

‘Time’ and ‘Presence’ wrestle in orgiastic confrontation, rather than reference social or narrative particulars. Geometric manifestations, Vitruvian figures, and amalgamations of orifice, phallus, and carapace perform in an orchestration of apocalypse and genesis.

Circumventing societal references, the work reveals meta-societal subjects. The viewer is left in a position of parallax – asked to accept the proposition of synchronistic events against a praxis concerned with immortal forms.
