Always one to play off of the complexities within our DNA, Schorr has once again delved into the intricate world evolution, or lack thereof, as the case may often times be, by exploring the Modern vs. Primitive behavioral dichotomy that makes up our present human condition. It is a topic often approached by the artist, questioning how we can be so technologically advanced in certain areas,
yet sinking back into primitive behaviors when relating to the world and each other.
Painting with masterly technique influenced by the likes of Bruegel, Dali, Bosch and Parrish, the painterly labors of the artist continue to overwhelm with amazing detail and impressive scale – both large and small. With tongue-in-cheek perfection, Todd pokes a finger of warning at the creeping decay of our modern society and our collective moral compass.
Exhibition Dates: March 17 – April 14, 2012
