Martin Mull: Endgame
February 26th - April 4th 2015
In Endgame, Hirschl & Adler Modern’s first solo exhibition of Martin Mull’s work, the 14 oil paintings on display burn with an incisive edge. Distanced both critically and temporally, Mull interrogates the areas where disparate images of American life overlap. Images advocating a willfully blind optimism are embedded with explosive scenes of social strife; the visual resonance of both echoing deeply, from discordance to violence. The underlying tension of these oppositional images promises an impending collision, one that is sure to be witnessed by the viewer either this day or the next. By titling the exhibition Endgame, Mull sarcastically hints that its outcome is predetermined.
