    Pentimenti Gallery presents its last show of the year, a solo exhibition by MARK KHAISMAN.

    In The Crowds, Mark Khaisman manipulates tape to interpret mid-20th century crowds in an exquisite mosaic-like manner. By layering pieces of tapes, he reconstructs well-known scenes of crowds down to their basic volumes and shapes. His inventive use of the medium manifests a crowd determined to celebrate or contribute to social or political change in the United States.


    While these images sound familiar, the temperament of those large masses of people remains open to interpretation. The exact nature of the people stays a mystery as no expression can be made out on any face. Khaisman expresses an interconnectedness amongst the individual people and brings them together into something larger than themselves.

    In his new work, Khaisman creates vivid tones of red, blue, and purple by staining masking tape with acrylic paint and then layering them as a collage.
