Marlon Mullen, 30 x 22".

Market Value $4,000 / Opening Bid Starts at $1,000

Marlon Mullen bases his paintings on found photographic images - mostly from lifestyle, news and contemporary art periodicals - which the artist uses as a departure point for his subsequent work. In the process of developing a painting Mullen's original magazine pages usually become obscured, or literally abstracted, where an image is subsequently reduced to a graphic schema of interlocking colors and forms. Mullen's works lives within the multiple histories of 20th century modernism, while remaining highly personal. Mullen's work was included in the 2019 Whitney Biennial in New York as well as in SFMOMA's SECA Art Awards exhibition. Although Marlon Mullen creates his work at NIAD Art Center, he is represented exclusively by JTT in New York and Adams and Ollman in Oregon.
