NAP Projects is proud to announce a solo presentation of works by LAND Gallery artist Michael Pellew for the 2019 SPRING/BREAK Art Show.
In keeping with this year’s show theme FACT AND FICTION, Glossing Over presents Pellew’s drawings, paintings, and sculptures in a celebrity echo chamber. Both surreal and believable, Pellew blurs the lines with an articulated vision featuring celebrity mash-ups like Ariana Grande singing with Metallica, or the Kardashians working at McDonald's. No celebrity is immune to Pellew’s brutal honesty; they are often transformed into monsters and zombies, or seen dealing with tense moments like family conflict and dissolving relationships. In their mutated mundane situations and environments, Pellew's celebrities become pop culture paper dolls, far removed from the glitz and pomp that saturates typical tabloid culture. His pairings seem infinite, as do his imaginative compositions.
Michael Pellew (b. 1979) lives in Brooklyn and has maintained a studio practice with LAND since 2005. Recent collaborations include Blu Dot and Ace Hotel, and his first solo exhibition was held at Western Exhibitions, in Chicago, IL in 2018.
Brooklyn, NY’s NAP Projects, established in 2017, represents and promotes artists who work in non-traditional contexts, from studio-day habilitation programs to community workshops and beyond.
