Just this past Wednesday we had creative jolt at “Studio 2091”, a collective group showing at an art gallery in Cuyahoga Falls Oh., organized by Amy Mothersbaugh Roos, who just happens to be the sister of DEVO’s Mark Mothersbaugh. I snapped these pictures of Mark’s work on display, dating back to his college days at Kent State in the early 1970’s.
For more information on DEVO and Mark Mothersbaugh: This is short clip from a Today Show … an overview of Mark’s success in the music world. What they don’t mention is his sincere visual creative passion.
The following comments are quotes from sister Amy about his artist visual creativity in a recent newspaper article about this show . . .
“Mark’s first love is art,”‚Ä¶The postcards series came about because on tour Mark only had time to do a little postcard sized artwork. He started sending family and friends, and he saved over 40,000 of them. They became the Postcard Diaries.”
A close up shot of his creative postcards created over the years…
” A small cabinet contains memorabilia from Mothersbaugh’s childhood, including a ring binder notebook containing biology class notes and many drawings.”
“‚Ä¶also includes several older pieces, such as the ceramic figures from his Kent State days.” … love the little bunny.
