The centerpiece of the sprawling presentation is an eight-foot-tall statue called ‘Aggression’ that portrays the artist’s sinister interpretation of Warner Bros.’ Marvin the Martian. Accompanying the life-sized work is a number of paintings packed with the artist’s dissected cartoon characters inspired by ’The Simpsons,’ Walt Disney mascot Mickey Mouse, and ‘Winnie The Pooh’ to name a few. Altogether, Gondek continues to channel dark narratives in his vivid compositions while gleaning stylistic references from comic books and punk rock.
