Featuring Mark Lee Webb
Dates: October 6 – 30, 2023
Events: Opening Reception: October 6, 6:30pm
Mark Lee Webb uses variations in colors, textures, lines, and weathering unique to commercial trash dumpsters to create spectacular abstracts. His work is Unexpected: the accidental splatter of paint, forklift gouging, and the randomness of rust found on the ubiquitous bins we see but never notice.
“I do not use titles that might suggest what I see in the shapes and figures because I do not want to lead the viewer into my visions. I want the viewer to make their own discoveries.”
Mark Lee Webb is inventing new ways to view the world through the lens of a camera. Distorted vestiges of weekend celebrations turned into still-life images. Contorted children’s toys. Bent images of industry. Abstractions extracted from degraded commercial dumpsters. These are just a few of the projects Mark is currently exploring.
