Future Tense: Paintings by Alex Gross 2010-2014

Out of stock
A lengthy parade of characters lost in their cell phones, iPads and computers finding themselves in worlds of neon-lit supermarkets, billboard infested metropolises, and naturalistic countryside panoramas: this existential vacuum is the psychological landscape that Gross presents in Future Tense. Most of his characters appear bored and distracted. His paintings exposes the result of corporate-dictated mass culture and our inability to be present and interact with the real world. Alex Gross' work reminds us, through a blend of symbolic and literal elements, that it is impossible to escape the domination of corporations and consumerism.
