Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mark Tansey (born 1949- in San Jose, California) is an American postmodern painter best known for monochromatic works, elaborate paintings incorporating hidden text, images and symbols and his invented "color wheel" approach to painting, in which a large, wooden wheel consisting of three rows of ambiguous words is spun-the results noted for Tansey's next work's subject. Tansey's paintings normally depict everyday or historical occurrences, though they reveal certain oddities under closer scrutinization. Although Mark Tansey uses depiction of recognizable objects in realistic perspective states, he is not a "realistic" or rather a "naturalistic" painter, because photography has co-opted the role of realism in painting. He argues that representation has other functions rather than "capturing the real." He argues that his work is about "how different realities interact with each other."show more
