Mark Booth: nothing to do with wizards

@ O’Connor Art Gallery

7900 W Division St, 4, River Forest, IL 60305

Opening Wednesday, November 3rd, from 4PM - 8PM

On view through Saturday, December 11th

Booth’s installation of text works in hand-cut vinyl and multi-media drawings obliquely explore the subjects of association, categorization, perception, death, and dreaming. The drawings combine abstract text and visual images. The spontaneously composed works feature improvisatory mark-making and writing that investigate the act of writing at the speed of drawing. Booth’s use of text, form and imagery explores the materiality, nuance and subjective nature of language. Odd sentence fragments (like gesture drawings) open up narrative spaces, privileging intuition and chance over highly calculated constructions.
