Martin Mull: State of the Union
November 2 through December 14, 2013
Martin Mull’s meticulous oil paintings and graphite drawings at Samuel Freeman look like slightly blurred images sourced from 1950s photo albums. But Mull, who has been exhibiting work since the 1980s and appearing in films and on TV for longer, makes his vintage images weird. One quirkily charming painting has green garden gnomes stenciled on all four corners.
