CLOUDCUCKOOLAND
New works by Mark Schoening
November 6 – December 18 2009

MFJ is pleased to present the work of Los Angeles based artist Mark Schoening.  Since leaving Boston just over a year ago for the west coast, Schoening returns with a new series of work that embodies his experience while working in Southern California.
Cloudcuckooland refers to an unrealistic state where everything seems to be perfect.  The concept is at the center of the works construction.  A palette of neons and metallics distracts, attracts, and separates multiple layers of an information explosion.  Instability and chaos have become the norm.  Creating a world in which one must remain partially unaware of reality in order to exist.
