An Implied Narrative at DCCA
featuring work by Mark Stockton

Vox populi member Mark Stockton is featured in An Implied Narrative: Contemporary Figurative Drawing
at the Delaware Center for Contemporary Art from Feb 16, 2013 through Jun 16, 2013 curated by J. Gordopn. An Implied Narrative examines how three contemporary artists explore personal and cultural narratives through drawn representations of the human figure. By investigating themes such as fame, gender, political affiliation, and anonymity, the artists invite viewers to question their own relationships to these various identities.

Looking at the works presented in the exhibition, we see that the compositions are sparse, with little or no contextual clues as to the type of space the figures inhabit. By removing extraneous elements, our focus is directed towards the signifiers of facial expression, body language, and dress to decipher what is presented. Who are these people, or, perhaps more accurately, who do we want them to be?

Artists included are Jason Maas, Mark Stockton, and Sean Lyman. An exhibition PDF can be found online here.
