Bklink: Coney Island Renderings Collages

Check out Robert Mars' cool collages of Coney Island. "Instead of trying to imagine Coney’s future, though, Robert Mars is commemorating its past. The Sunset Park artist (who contributed a book of prints to The Sampler) works within the school of California Pop Art, where Americana icons of the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s loom large. Using photography, old newspapers, vintage maps, brown paper bags and acrylics, his first body of collaged paintings focused on the ghosts of the highways: all those old neon motel signs, muscle cars, and every individually owned liquor store, auto body shop, and bowling alley that stands out from the sea of big box stores."--Brooklyn Based
