Marcel Dzama: Even the Ghosts of the Past

Untitled Marcel Dzama... Untitled (Page 1 of 13) (2007, 13 sketchbook pages, including cover - mixed media on paper). From the exhibition Marcel Dzama: Even the Ghosts of the Past at David Zwirner Gallery in New York. "...Marcel Dzama is best known for his figurative compositions of pen and watercolor on manila-colored paper. Bearing a characteristic palette of muted browns, grays, greens, and reds, Dzama’s drawings are populated by an expansive cast of human, animal, and hybrid
characters. In this exhibition distinct personalities take center stage, most notably the masked and armed 'terrorist.' In the sixteen-part drawing Inflated Threat, 2007, this character is obsessively repeated amongst cowboys, archers, and femmes fatales, suggesting the exaggerated climate of fear and shoot-'em-up mentality at the forefront of American politics."

"The Ningyo-Do Bunko Database has more than 100 albums of late 19th/early 20th century watercolour sketches of toy designs.

By turns scary and intriguing (much like Japanese game shows and the garbled translations below) the selection of images above comes from the sixty albums in the Kyosen Guangucho section of the website."
