This Saturday, fasten your seat belts for the techicolor nightmares of Dave MacDowell as Thinkspace debuts 'Project Mayhem'. A self-taught artist who's faithful to the movement, MacDowell combines a pop surrealist aesthetic with recognizable popular cultural references gleaned from movies, cartoons, and music, among others, and transforms the known into powerful generational odes to discontent and dystopian irony. His work combines humor with criticism and an acerbic wit, unearthing the horrors that lurk just beneath the veneer of celebrity culture and the cult of Disney. His work fearlessly taunts the obsequiousness of popular culture, and its iconographies, by creating unexpected inversions and re-combinations that gently tug at its unravelling strings.
