"The various characters in Dzama's ongoing body of work allow each viewer to stretch the imagination to reveal enveloping (ir)realities. Defining that sense of reality is a slippery slope. The drawings are rarely tied to one genre or another, and ultimately, the viewer is left to decipher exactly what it is that's so indescribably disturbing about these images."
Wayne Baerwaldt, excerpted from Drawings From the Bernardi Collection.

Marcel Dzama: Drawings from the Bernardi Collection

Text by James Patten, Wayne Baerwaldt.

Over the past few years Marcel Dzama's drawings of odd mutant figures have propelled him to bona fide art stardom. Executed with guileless simplicity and infused with a radiant innocence and an idiosyncratic sense of humor far removed from other strategies that have fueled artmaking over the past decade, Dzama's work is part of a new sensibility among artists born in the mid-1970s, that mingles the influence of Henry Darger, cartoon strips and a dark surrealistic streak. This concise and affordable survey examines the evolution of Dzama's singular approach to drawing between the key years of 1996 and 2001, using works held in the Bernardi Collection. In an accompanying essay, James Patten links Dzama to Mikhail Bakhtin's ideas on grotesque humor and the carnivalesque, showing how each drawing contains an amalgam of allusions to twentieth-century popular culture.
