Berlin - Mark Flood: “Astroturf Yelp Review Says Yes” At Peres Projects Through June 13, 2015”

D. Creahan, Art Observed, June 10, 2015

For years, Mark Flood has mined a specific aspect of the artistic vocabulary when it comes to pop culture, a sort of irreverent mirror that plays the often cloying imagery of advertising, corporate branding, and the Hollywood star machine against itself, often performed against the backdrop of more formally-oriented paintings and text-based works, a combination of styles that spreads the artist across a spectrum that seems to mix commentary with composition in any number of permutations.
