Mark Morrisroe: Mark Dirt

Introduction by Stuart Comer. Text by Lia Gangitano, Ramsey McPhillips.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Mark Morrisroe: Mark Dirt</I>.The photographs of Mark Morrisroe (1959–1989) are steeped in fragility, both as material objects scored and pockmarked by the vicissitudes of time, and as forlorn commemorations of brief moments in all too brief lives. In this sense, the photographs are also objects of ephemera, of a piece with Morrisroe’s equally fragile magazines, collages and drawings, which this volume compiles for the first time. Containing much previously unpublished work, Mark Dirt includes spreads from Morrisroe’s punk zine Dirt (“he sort of invented the Boston punk scene,” Jack Pierson later recalled of his former lover), as well as correspondence and notes by the artist, sketches and even his last will and testament. All of these documents have been assembled by Morrisroe’s longtime partner Ramsey McPhillips, and represent the most complete survey of the artist’s non-photographic works.

'Mark Morrisroe: Mark Dirt' to Launch at BOOKMARC, NYC

"Mark, who claimed to be the illegitimate son of THE Boston Strangler prostituted himself at 15, totally by choice, to buy art supplies, ice cream cones and make-up, thereby leaving thousands of breathtakingly beautiful photographs, mostly of himself, masking an unparalleled tragic life. He succumbed to HIV on the eve of his friends becoming huge international Art Stars. In the pantheon of 'Bad Ass' it is hard to one up Mark Morrisroe." Featured self-portrait (and text) are reproduced from Mark Dirt, Paper Chase Press' new collection of Morrisroe ephemera, assembled by the artist's longtime partner, Ramsey McPhillips. The book launches in New York on Friday, September 13th at BOOKMARC. continue to blog
