Subverted Reality: The Prints of Emmett Merrill

 

The figures in artist Emmett Merrill‘s prints are caught in a subverted reality. The normalcy of the modern world eroded. In pieces like The Tornado and Airport Bar, Merrill chronicles the very moment when chaos becomes the everyday.

Each of Merrill’s limited edition lithographs keep a loose composition — each element connected by his muted colors and deviously intelligent and humorous visual narratives.
