‘Ruminations, Musings & Lucid Daydreams’

Mark Palmer is living proof that you can never be too busy. He co-founded two businesses (OOHology and Makespace) and is launching a third (DoorBelles). In the spare time that he has so little of, he paints. After 20 years, Palmer is having a solo exhibition featuring 13 new large paintings and drawings. The works in “Ruminations, Musings & Lucid Daydreams” are “not only a chronicle of his psyche but a deftly controlled representation of the year spent producing the work,” according to gallery owner Tim Faulkner. Many represent Palmer’s recovery from a serious health issue, with titles summing up his outlook. One of my favorites is “I Jumped Into The Abyss But It Only Came Up To My Knees.”
