MARK WHALEN

PRESSURE


The figures in Mark Whalen's works often appear to be in a state of unrest; whether amongst an angst-ridden room full of frenetic activity or metaphorically, where the state of mind appears trapped within a combative juncture. Across a new series of paintings Whalen has his figures – androgynous beings – strapped down and bound, in what has become an ongoing study into the complexities of displacement.
