Gentle Reminders by Mark Whalen
Time Out says
Debuting his first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, LA-based artist Mark Whalen brings a quirky collection of sculptures and wall-hung reliefs to Over the Influence Gallery. Developing from his past series, Whalen's newest body of works witness the mixture of everyday themes of work and play. Industrial materials are merged with found objects and studio reserves, iconic human shapes, colours, and chrome elements – all brought together to create eccentric compositions. While Whalen's works are humorous, lighthearted, and somewhat frivolous, you best believe that the process is anything but.
