exit (a gallery space) presents:

Mark Keffer
The Future of Heads

May 9th – June 21st 2008

Artist's reception: Friday. May 9th 2008. 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.

In his first solo exhibition at exit (exit a gallery space), Cleveland artist Mark Keffer will feature his most recent series of paintings in an exhibition entitled The Future of Heads. Describing his work as the layering of several disparate elements, all of which flirt with representation and imaginary landscapes, Mark Keffer seeks to reflect the fragmentary, open-ended nature of thinking and to do so in a way that is simultaneously austere and joyous.

I see each work as an empirical experience, not an equation. I want to empty my work of subjects that can be expressed verbally in order to emphasize those that can only be addressed through the language of painting.”

Please join us Friday, May 9th 2008 for an Artist’s reception at the gallery from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Mark Keffer studied at the University of Akron, Kent State University and Ohio State University, receiving and MFA from Ohio State University in 1991. Mark has shown his work on a national and international level, including recent exhibitions in Reykjavik, Iceland, at the Rockford Art Museum in Rockford, Illinois and the Midyear Exhibition at the Butler Institute of American Art.
