CMay Gallery is pleased to present Heaven on Earth, a solo exhibition featuring new works by Los Angeles-based artist Manfred Menz. In a series of 14 photographs, Menz manipulates mundane cloudscapes into opportunities for advertisement. Chemtrails are decorated with the American Airlines logo; Coca-Cola perches on a serene cumulus peaking out from a hilltop; Netflix takes over a nimbus threatening to blot out blue skies. Somewhere between comical and cautionary, the innocuousness of Menz’s satire is underscored by the fact that the work isn’t glossy, it doesn’t carry itself with the bearings of heroic labor. It has a plainness that allows us to discern fact from fiction. On the other, more insidious hand, corporate advertising is so codified that these photo-manipulations are funny compared to the sleek, clever ways we have been advertised to for decades. Our deepest desires have been hacked and a reality has been molded that we want more than our own.
