Additional Information: Matt Mullican is known for his works created while under hypnosis, a process he has been performing live since the 1970's. "When asked if he thinks his approach is problematic, Mullican responds: 'I believe it's because of what I represent in my work. People may not write this about me, but I represent God in my work. I represent heaven in my work. I represent death in my work. I represent the world in my work. I represent the soul, whatever it is, in my work. It's troubling, tough stuff that is very complicated, of course, and sometimes hard to look at.' -- excerpted from Cedar Pasori's 2018 Interview Magazine article, "Virtual reality and hypnosis are Matt Mullican's choice art tools." Gallery label to reverse: Brooke Alexander Gallery, New York, New York. Provenance: Brooke Alexander Gallery, New York, New York.
