Todd Schorr’s Universe — A New Retrospective of the Pop Surrealist at Otis
Designed for Extinction ia a solo exhibition featuring the paintings of Los Angeles-based artist Todd Schorr, a leading figure in the world of Pop Surrealism and the “lowbrow”. Schorr is undeniably inspired by Renaissance masters such as Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, and Salvador Dali, as well as the early animated cartoons of Walt Disney and Max Fleischer, underground comics best exemplified by Zap, and classic films from the 1930’s such as King Kong and Frankenstein. His highly polished, fantastic paintings are intricate narratives about evolution and the plight of man.
Show opens on June 26, 2010 and runs through September 11, 2010
