    Fred Tomaselli is a painter whose work will be featured in New York Times, an exhibition in our Room gallery this spring. He grew up in southern California, feeling the influence of nearby theme parks with their manufactured reality as well as the music and drug counterculture of Los Angeles in the 1970s and 1980s. It’s fitting, then, that his work evokes both the intensely attractive side of escapism and a darker sense of potentially becoming lost.

    Tomaselli first became known for highly decorative, intensively worked paintings that evoked escapism through both their imagery and their materials. New York Times presents a more direct confrontation with “reality”: a series of altered front pages from our nation’s newspaper of record. The works set up a striking contrast between newspapers’ sober, columned depictions of reality and Tomaselli’s vivid interventions. The results are sometimes funny, sometimes sinister, often both.
