BRAND NEW in original gift box. GREAT GIFT ITEM!!! Marcel Dzama's Melting Snowman canisters were inspired by a series of personal autobiographical drawings and paintings allegorically documenting his move to New York from Winnipeg. Three of the 4 ceramic snowmen have an airtight lid and are designed for storage of condiments, spices, coffee beans or candies. Marcel Dzama's small and delicate drawings, hand-tinted with watercolor and rootbeer, have an eccentric aesthetic sensibility. The compositions of cartoon-ish creatures combine references that are at once intellectually highbrow and reminiscent of retro pop culture from the Roaring 1920s and 1950s. The disconnected and darkly humorous images are linked by their psychological tension and by the fact that they were all made while the artist was reading Dante Alighieri's Inferno. A collage of writing and drawings on lined notebook paper makes up the 'essay' in this otherwise purely visual introduction to Dzama's work that Dave Eggers has described as 'two percent wit, ninety-eight percent fragile, fragile beauty.'In exhibitions thoughout the Americas and Europe, Marcel Dzama's humour has instantly generated a fan club of admirers. His various recurring characters simultaneously represent archetypal innocents and wreckless perverts. Dzama depicts situations and characters whose weirdness are ripe for transformation (to unknown ends) and all are vaguely familiar: Spiderman, faux film-noir scenes, absurd Surrealist sets, the Wizard of Oz, mutant Inuit forms from the high Arctic, The Grapes of Wrath, Jean-Pierre Jeunet's City of Lost Children, E.T., 1950s sci-fi sets are some of the sources blending high and low culture."His strength lies in his drawing, especially in the emotional precision of his facial expressions, and in the deadpan way he portrays an inner life that is probably only slightly stranger than average"--Roberta Smith, The New York Times The major touring exhibition, 'The Royal Art Lodge: Ask the Dust', initiated by the Drawing Center, New York in 2003, recently closed at its final destination at MoCA, Los Angeles. This exhibit traveled to Toronto and The Netherlands.SELECT RECENT SOLO EXHIBITIONS:2017'Marcel Dzama: Drawing on a Revolution', La Casa Encendida, Madrid, Spain (9/28/2017 - 1/7/2018)2016'Marcel Dzama: A Flower of Evil', Sies + Höke, Düsseldorf, Germany'Marcel Dzama and Raymond Pettibon: Forgetting the Hand', David Zwirner, New York, NY2014'Marcel Dzama: Une Danse des Bouffons (A Jester's Dance)', David Zwirner, New York, NY2013'Marcel Dzama: Puppets, Pawns, and Prophets', David Zwirner, London, UK2012'Fairy Tales, Monsters, and the Genetic Imagination' (group exhibition), Glenbow Museum, Calgary, Canada 'My Winnipeg: There's No Place Like Home' (group exhibition), Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art, Winnipeg, Canada 'Fairy Tales, Monsters, and the Genetic Imagination' (group exhibition), Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG), Winnipeg, Canada 'Marcel Dzama', Centro de Arte Contemporáneo (CAC) de Málaga, Málaga, Spain 'Marcel Dzama: The End Game', World Chess Hall of Fame, St. Louis, MO'Fairy Tales, Monsters, and the Genetic Imagination' (group exhibition), Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Nashville, TN2011'My Winnipeg: There's No Place Like Home' (group exhibition), Musée International des Arts Modestes, Sète, France 'Painting Between The Lines' (group exhibition), CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, San Francisco, CA'Marcel Dzama: The Never Known into the Forgotten', Kunstverein Braunschweig, Braunschweig, Germany'Marcel Dzama & Jockum Nordström: The Donkey Prefers Garbage to Gold', Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Stockholm, Sweden'Marcel Dzama: Behind Every Curtain', David Zwirner, New York, NY2010'Larger than Life - Stranger than Fiction' (group exhibition), 11.
