Oil on canvas
72 x 60”
Quebec-based painter, Mark Lang, plays with our concepts of art and art history. His primary intention is to elevate the seemingly mundane aspects of human existence, turning urban interior spaces into a stage on which everyday occurrences become a spectacle. Lang appropriates style and imagery from historical figures in art history, layering references to painters and paintings. The images created are rich in both a historical and visual sense, and are imbued with irony.
