Renowned for his exploration of perspective, Mark Grotjahn is an artist whose work spans across the mediums of colour drawings and paintings as well as sculpture.
 
« I think my masks reference artists who reference primitivism. They're not directly connected to tribal arts. I think they look more like third-grade art projects. »
Mark Grotjahn
Grotjahn’s most notable work is his Butterfly series – developing on his geometric paintings, the Butterfly series are comprised of thick oil and painted in such a way that the subject appears to stretch, recede and shrink on the canvas. After a skiing accident, Grotjahn was unable to paint with the same intensity that he usually would and could not work for more than two hours at a time;
 
« I got my first show at Blum & Poe because Paul McCarthy postponed his show, and they came to my studio and asked me if I could put together a show in two weeks. »
Mark Grotjahn



his Face Paintings series sprung from this accident - works depicting a simple geometrical structure of mouth, nose and eyes – Grotjahn worked on sheets of cardboard for this series and would meticulously apply layers upon layers of oil resulting in an almost sculptural finish to his work.
