Mike Weiss Gallery is pleased to present Good for you Son, Canadian artist Patrick Lundeen’s first New York City solo exhibition. Lundeen appropriates found objects and images and imbues his works with an alternate context, function and message. He often brings together seemingly disparate objects—from flags to rugs to posters to keyboards to grocery store dailies and MAD Magazine pages—into cohesive works that often resemble an anthropomorphic mask. Neon-colored kaleidoscopic patterns embellish 6 foot tall cut out canvas masks, speaking to the artist’s fascination with the exaggerated theatricality of Coney Island type characters as well as Outsider Art motifs. Referencing pop culture and the neo-impressionists, the works hover between the humorous and sinister and the naïve and sardonic.
