From the official announcement:

Mascots presents an edited version of the collected paintings from Ray Fenwick's recently published book. The works, not unlike a group of short stories, are a collection of vignettes and staccato bursts of narrative that combine to form a surreal-and vaguely familiar-parallel world. Like Fenwick's previous work, the paintings are driven by language and typography, occupying a space where visual art, comics, prose and poetry bleed into one another.

Ray Fenwick is an artist living and working in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He has shown in Canada and the U.S. and is the author of two books. His previous book, Hall of Best Knowledge , earned a nomination for "Best Avant-Garde Graphic Novel" from The Canadian Cartooning Awards. For the month of March he will attend a residency at Struts Gallery, where he will be working on new audio pieces and text paintings.

FEBRUARY 10 - MARCH 6, 2011
