Opening Reception and Content Rot Signing

Step into the “Space Between Ticks,” a thought-provoking two-artist exhibition that fearlessly delves into the juxtaposition of childhood dreams and the realities of adulthood. Through every stage of conception to final realization, this show masterfully captures the moments where the artists’ imagination sneaks into the margins of everyday life – from meeting notes to lunch napkins and discarded memos.
Prepare to be immersed in a nightmarish yet mesmerizing collection of illustrations that dare to confront the mundane, social and political disappointments, and personal shortcomings that define the human experience. With each stroke, Marc Wagner and Les Cotton weave narratives that challenge conventional perceptions and spark introspection.
Despite their haunting themes, the works in “Space Between Ticks” cleverly conceal their depth beneath playful colors that pay homage to the vibrant toy aisles of the 90s. The deceptive juxtaposition between the whimsical and the profound beckons viewers to look beyond the surface and explore the hidden complexities of each piece.
Presented by Rose and Eugene, this gallery takeover unveils the talent and creativity of Marc Wagner and Les Cotton, two visionary artists who fearlessly explore the boundaries of visual storytelling. Marc’s latest comic-book release, “Content Rot,” comes to life through hand-painted panels that transport you into a world where fantasy and reality coexist.
Meanwhile, Les Cotton’s massive collection of mixed-media panels presents a compelling narrative that speaks to the human condition with striking honesty.
As the crowning jewel of this exhibition, a collaborative installation between the two artists invites visitors to step into an immersive experience that blurs the lines between the observer and the observed, the dreamer and the dreamed.
Dare to confront the “Space Between Ticks” and embark on a journey of self-discovery and introspection. Join us in celebrating the artistic brilliance of Marc Wagner and Les Cotton as they redefine visual storytelling and challenge the boundaries of perception.
