Currently on view at Michael Benevento, Los Angeles is pleased to present a solo exhibition of 100 paintings by California artist, Mark Roeder. Initially made from personal photographs produced for the purpose of painting and then later using sourced imagery, Mark Roeder’s ongoing collection of black and white Antipaintings mine the unique and complicated relationship between photography and subjectivity. They examine how photography’s ability to represent actual events is complicated when personal significance or idiosyncrasy become rationalized by the proliferation of so-called user-generated content on the Internet, particularly through online image bookmarking collections (visual ‘surf’ blogs).
Mark Roeder is on view through March 8, 2014.
