“PAHANA” by Mark Nelson

“PAHANA” by Mark Nelson

Paperish Mess, located in Ukrainian Village, is thrilled to announce the opening reception for “PAHANA” featuring the work of Chicago-based Mixed Media artist Mark Nelson on Saturday, June 14th, 2014 from 7:00pm-11:00pm. 

Complimentary celebratory libations and snacks will be enjoyed throughout the event! 

Mark Nelson brings together a collection of objects he has been producing since a mysterious invitation to a Niman ceremony on the sacred lands of the Hopi in 2011. His fabricated forms and drawings represent an existential quantification of both his initial encounter on a Hopi Mesa high above cinder cone plains and how it relates to our own isolation from our extra terrestrial surroundings as we anesthetize our daily lives with barriers of plastic, aluminum, and Bluetooth transmitted impairment.
