NOWhere Limited Gallery in Nederland, Colorado is pleased to announce a solo exhibit of fine art by Mark Mothersbaugh. The exhibit features a dozen stunningly designed area rugs, each depicting a scene from the artist's vast and vivid imagination.

Mark Mothersbaugh, well-known as a founding member of the innovative band DEVO, has been creating artwork in many forms for more than 3 decades. His love of visual art began in childhood, just after it was discovered that he was extremely nearsighted and legally blind. His first correctional glasses offered the young Mothersbaugh a new view of the world, fueling a lifelong infatuation with imagery and illustrations.

Mark's recent visual artwork has been largely inspired by his 30-year habit of creating handmade postcards to send to friends from various stops on DEVO tours. This obsession has evolved into a visual diary that currently yields the artist 1-25 new images per day. These images have served as the basis for the artist's critically acclaimed solo shows of the 80s/90s as well as for his "gallery tours" which have been occurring at art venues throughout the globe since 2003.

With DEVO, Mothersbaugh's most recognized music project, the artist showcases his artistic abilities to millions of fans. Through their films, videos, costumes, LP covers, stage shows, and printed materials, Mark Mothersbaugh and DEVO forever altered commonly held preconceptions of how a rock band can function in popular culture.
