Marek Ranis

Staff Pick

The term “global warming” can cause narcolepsy. “Resource depletion” and “overpopulation” are coma-inducing mantras. Marek Ranis is a Charlotte artist who makes us think about big issues because he presents those issues with force and authority and beauty. See four paintings from his Albedo series at the NASCAR Hall of Fame once the center opens next May. They are stunning and thoughtful and will sting your head with fractured pieces of our disappearing world. All artists think they’re important. This guy actually is.
