EXHIBITION TITLE :: Todd Schorr: Atomic Cocktail
VENUE: Crocker Art Museum (Sacramento, CA)
DATES: July 26 — January 31, 2021
Artist Todd Schorr (born 1954) began his career as a professional illustrator in New York City, creating album covers, movie posters, and magazine covers for clients like AC/DC, George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola, and Time. In the mid-'80s, he took a break from illustration to focus on fine art and has since earned broad recognition as a master painter. The style and influences of his complex narrative painting are attributed to a multitude of sources, ranging from Northern Renaissance to 18th- and 19th-century Romantic painters, combined with contemporary imagery and an illustrative style. This exhibition highlights 24 works by the artist, including examples of his iconic paintings, sculpture, and preparatory studies, as well as rarely seen works.
