About the Work
From Brad Pitt to Prince Charles, Mark Flood’s work leaves no cultural touchstone unturned. Flood examines ideas about beauty and society through a wide variety of mediums, including his signature lace paintings and grotesque reimaginings of celebrity head shots. Mark Flood's LIKE signs were first seen in 2012 at a hotel room pop-up exhibition during the thick of Miami art fair season. Quickly taken and redistributed, these signs found themselves all around the Miami area from NADA to A-Rod's batting cage. With this action, Flood externalized the act of "liking" content via social media and "illuminated the enslavement of the human race by Facebook." In an Interview article, Flood spoke about his work in relation to the images we approve with the swift click of a button: "In reality, my work has nothing to do with the celebrities, nothing to do with them. It is about us, and why we like pictures of people that stare at us."
Mark Flood (b. 1957, Houston, TX) has held solo exhibitions at F (Houston), Karma (New York), Maccarone Gallery (New York), Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Frank Elbaz (Dallas), Ever Gold Projects (San Francisco), Rubell Family Collection (Miami), and Peres Projects (Berlin). Flood’s work is represented in the Contemporary Art Collection of the Birmingham Art Museum, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Dallas Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), and the Menil Collection, (Houston) among others.
Authentication & Resale
Signed and dated by the artist on reverse.
Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 3-5 weeks for framing and delivery.
All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Any artwork that is floated will be placed in a frame that has a ⅝” wide flat face and is 1 5/16” deep. Work will be floated with a 1” border around it.
