Calvin Marcus &
Chadwick Rantanen,
'M*A*S*H'


Both artists:
Live and work
in Los Angeles.

The idea behind 
M*A*S*H: 
An exhibition
of new works
by Marcus and 
Rantanen,
engaging in 
a practice of
making, oriented 
around meticulous 
material studies
and the aesthetics 
used to organize 
individuals. 

Themes: 
Containment 
and uniformity.

On the 
ground floor: 
Small-scale 
crayon drawings 
of war-ravaged 
soldiers lying 
in grass by 
Marcus 

tubular, 
looping vitrines 
containing 
healthcare 
fabrics by 
Rantanen

On the 
upper level:
Equally sized,
portrait-oriented
drawings of
grass by Marcus
exposing the
absence of the
dead soldiers 
&
bundles of
weathered
aluminum poles,
carefully placed
by Rantanen,
featuring a 
variety of
printing 
calibration
images of
color swatches,
gradients and
photographs
of skies
sublimated
into the surface.
