In Mark Whalen’s work, science, sport, illustrated perspective and construction are depicted in outer space environments - as if an alternate universe is starting from scratch. Evoking the rituals of ancient cultures, we see the exaltation of time, erect deities, totems and ritual humans sacrifices. Since 2006, Whalen’s work has been shown in a constant stream of exhibitions in Los Angeles, London, Berlin, Italy and Australia. He was included in 2009’s Apocalypse Wow! exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome and more recently in Space Invaders at the National Gallery of Australia.
