Doppelgängers: A Series of Paintings by Mark Wojahn
Born a fraternal twin himself, the artist’s long fascination with the alter egos of humans has manifested itself in his paintings. Wojahn transforms select photos from his portfolio (both old and new) into antique style images of our evil twins, by adding multiple layers of paint and texture on them. The results are eerie and disturbing, yet quite beautiful.
Wojahn is a filmmaker, and a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He is also an McKnight Photography Fellow, who has had his works exhibited in numerous exhibitions across the U.S.
The exhibition will be on show at the Rogue Buddha Gallery from Friday, September 7th, 2012 to Saturday, September 29th, 2012.
