Mark Flood is a Houston-based and internationally acclaimed artist whose multi-disciplinary practice spans over four decades. His acute social observations cover many subjects including celebrity, politics and consumerism. These subjects are all in the service of how the viewer is controlled by pictures and ultimately how they force the viewer to look back at themselves. His anti-institutional and anti-art market approach is saturated by an irreverence that questions basic things that the rest of us all blindly accept. Making alterations to advertisements, media pictures, and point of purchase displays, Flood is a restless innovator whose work is simultaneously vulnerable and brutally honest.
Recent exhibitions include Karma, NYC (2020); Maccarone Gallery, NYC (2017); Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (2016); Frank Elbaz, Dallas (2016); Ever Gold Projects, San Francisco (2016); Rubell Family Collection, Miami (2015); and Peres Projects, Berlin (2015). Flood’s work is found in the permanent collections of the Birmingham Museum of Art; the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth; the Dallas Museum of Art; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and The Menil Collection, Houston.
