Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing at Tyler, Mark Shetabi, has an upcoming exhibition in New York City.
The Grand Tour will be Shetabi’s fourth solo show presented by the Jeff Bailey Gallery. It will feature new sculptures and paintings that explore ideas about travel, transition and escape.
Many of the pieces depict places or technology of the past that have now become obsolete.
The sculptures that serve as points of departure, Campers, and the painting Girl on a Bicycle feature styles that could be old or new.
The exhibit also features the sculpture Arcade and the painting Caspian Sea Hyatt. Both portray a certain technology or style from another time that are now outdated
Shetabi depicted objects and images in a way that invites further consideration. By using painting and sculpture, he creates a permanent place that resists the eventual disappearance of the things from the past.
The exhibition will open on Friday, May 10 and run until June 22.
