In line with its vision to support artistic diversity, Santa Ana's newly opened Marcas Contemporary Art presents “Smoke & Mirrors,” a group exhibition showcasing a cross section of trending themes in the ‘young’ contemporary art movement. Included in the exhibition are: figurative contemporary painters like Tom Garner, whose 20 years in Italy infuses his art with classical ideals, New Yorker JeanPaul Mallozzi who uses colors and vibrations to exude emotions and energy from the body; monotype print work from Oakland’s Grady Gordon, whose art is influenced by mythologies of the ancient world; large hyper-realist graphite portraits by NY native Paul Kaiser; street artist Tristan Eaton’s pop culture abstracted works, and the design-inspired architectural illustrations of Joseph Burwell. Also showing are Fumi Nakamura, whose carefully detailed drawings evoke a magical realm, esteemed artist and La Verne Professor Tim Musso, whose large scale intricate woodcut and screen prints reveal the intricacies of the natural world, and the animation-influenced, darkly detailed work of Jon Wayshak.
