Mark Crisanti's collage/paintings address evolution and an often-awry coexistence in our rapidly advancing world. Attaching a bird head to a human body, Crisanti blurs our perception between man and animal, yet carefully avoids anthropomorphizing his portrayals. The blank stare of each bird, amidst daily vices and activities confronts us with the irony of our own human actions. Crisanti uses various ephemera as backgrounds-dictionary pages, S & H green stamps, gameboards, and manuals to enrich his confrontations.
