Exhibition Overview

Ed Bisese, a landscape architect based in College Park, Maryland, is known for large-scale painted portraits, oversized heads, and walk-in sculpture made of everyday materials. His work is hilarious and contemplative, poking at the tenuous relationship between wonder and paranoia. This exhibition showcases illustrative and imaginative characters that continue to make light of reality, utilizing Gwyneth Paltrow, hula girls, and other friends as inspiration.
