Norman, Martin and Me
The series, "Norman, Martin and Me" by NYC artist, Steve Marcus, is a series of artwork inspired by the Great American Novelist, Norman Mailer's commentary on Jewish American Philosopher, Martin Buber's "Tales of the Hasidim". Mailer's writings and reactions appeared in Commentary Journal, published by the American Jewish Committee in the early 60's. It is in these obscure articles that Mailer explores his individual identity, the evolving collective American identity and the soul of the nation. Marcus uses underground comic inspired style illustrates Norman Mailer's unique perspective on Buber's re-telling of the fabled stories of Hasidim's founders this rare academic response. “Norman, Martin and Me” limited edition prints was shared at the Miami during the week of Art Base and in Sarasota, Florida in 2018.
