Marlin Bert - Still Life | Opens September 4th
"I’ve often combined pop art and logos with the abstract work that I do. The LIFE logo has been a favorite image and at the beginning of the COVID quarantine everything felt different and I lacked inspiration. Life felt still, stopped. After about 6 weeks I realized I needed to continue in the new normal. Everyone was talking about how life had changed and would never be the same. I started working with the LIFE logo and almost subconsciously the logo started right side up but as the work continued the word turned backwards and upside down. Art imitating life! Life stood still but it’s still life." - Marlin Bert
