Sunday : Mark Melvin

15 March - 19 April 2012 Gallery Exhibitions

The Cob Gallery presents an exhibition of recent works by British artist Mark Melvin.

 

Sunday’ features a range of installation pieces in which Melvin examines the human condition through the lens of popular culture. Using wit and wordplay, Melvin reappropriates familiar songs and idioms to explore time, repetition, and the cyclical nature of cultural stimulation and communication.

 

Part of a new generation of ‘young British artists’, Melvin’s work was selected by Tim Marlow and Sir Peter Blake as the winner of the 2007 Nationwide Mercury Art Prize and was featured as one of Saatchi’s 4 New Sensations on Channel 4.
