Marc Handelman: Scenes from the New Miasma
Marc Handelmanâs paintings explore the intersection of power, propaganda, national identity, fascism, beauty, and kitsch through subjective fantasies inspired by the rhetorical and visual legacy of nineteenth century American Landscape painting.
Handelman constructs paintings that seek to dismantle, reify and complicate the seductive relationship between beauty and the moral delusion so often embedded in aestheticizing processes. Drawing from sordid discourses and histories both real and imagined and within a shifting visual framework at once representational, symbolic, and abstract, Handelmanâs paintings conflate spaces that both stabilize and disrupt a comfortable recognition and relationship to his subjects.
Landscapes Focused and Idealized By Carie Moyer
Marc Handelman is a tricky painter. âWarm White Blizzard,â his current solo debut at Lombard-Freid Fine Arts, consists primarily of landscape paintings, each rendered with a kind of swoony technical bravura and revelry in the possibilities of materials.
The viewing experience Marc Handelman creates is not one of comfort - his unsettling work references a history of painting that ranges from the Hudson River School to Abstract Expressionism to Thomas Kinkade, and depicts troubling landscapes, billboards and nationalistic iconography.
