Mars-1 gew on me. I originally saw his paintings as very psychedelic, an overload of colors, and no way to relate to them. But I've since discovered a greater complexity and beauty to them.
When I look at them today, I see little worlds that are part machine and part organic. These worlds have their own ecosystems within that are sometimes revealed by the painter and look beautiful!
I still get a psychedelic feel when I look them but enjoy it this time.

He has an upcoming exhibit at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York, February 21 - March 21, 2009.
