Save the Date: Salon & Closing Reception of “Personal Baggage” at F.A.B. Gallery in Santa Monica – Sunday, April 30th

Posted by
FAB Gallery, in Santa Monica, has a new solo exhibition titled: Personal Baggage/Paper V. Plastic, that includes new sculptures and works on paper by Los Angeles-based artist Mark X Farina.

The artist’s first solo exhibition with FAB, introduces the thesis work for Mark’s MFA in Public Practice from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.

Personal Baggage features various concepts that revolve around the value of art, recycling, forgery, fake objects and ultimately class.

At its core this is a Pop Art collection of mixed media paintings and sculptures made out of repurposed consumer materials. It explores topics from the environmental impact of everyday choices like ‘paper or plastic,’ to how we define, appropriate and present our own identities.

This installation in FAB Gallery is Part I of his Thesis Exhibition. Part II will take place at Otis College of Art and Design graduate studios (see flyer below) along with the Public Practice MFA show.  Save the Date for FAB Gallery ‘s Sunday Salon on Sunday, April 30th from 2:00pm – 5:00pm. This is also the closing reception.
