Mellancamp Exhibition Comes To The Mansfield Art Center

18 Jun , 2022  

Special to 1812Blockhouse

The voice of the heartland, John Mellencamp, brings his mixed-media exhibition Paintings & Assemblages to The Mansfield Art Center. A Grammy Award winner and member of The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Mellencamp is also an accomplished painter, collector, and activist. Paintings & Assemblages documents America’s heart and soul, exposing unsettling, but beautiful truths with an attitude of defiance, and narrative sensibility.

As his musical career flourished, Mellencamp began to paint earnestly in the 1980’s. His affinity for portraiture, influenced by the works of Otto Dix and Max Beckmann, shares a kinship with German Expressionism of the early twentieth century. Like his music, Mellencamp’s paintings are carefully composed through the structural requirements of harmony, rhythm, and order. His large-scale oil portraits and mixed-media pieces examine subjects that speak to the viewer with a voice as powerful as his songs.
