Mike Houston: American Smells

138 Bayard Street, between Graham and Manhattan, 646-258-3792
April 1 - April 30, 2006
Reception: Saturday, April 1, 7 - 10 PM
Web Site

Mike Houston’s new collection of work, entitled American Smells, consists of new silkscreen and letterpress prints, paintings on the wall and vinyl floor tiles, directly and indirectly relating to the quirky specifics of consumerism, sloth, determination and collective thought that are part and parcel of the American Circus.

Drawing from television, advertisements, observation and the general American subconscious, Mike’s work relies on a simple illustrative aesthetic whose influences are underground comics, populist printmaking, signage, and pure absurdist silliness.

A live 8 bit music performance by Receptors will begin at 9 pm.
