Chicken Little and the Culture of Fear Scene 1 (The Garden), 2004

Description


Nancy Chunn will exhibit paintings, from 1982 to 2004, which are based on geopolitical themes and executed in a variety of styles. The exhibition features: new paintings that focus on the aftermath of 9/11; previous work based on current events and the power of the media; and early paintings that depict tyrannized nations from an historical and international perspective. For each well-researched topic, Chunn invents a new pictorial language that provides a tension between the subject and its presentation, interpreting and distancing the documentary and emotionally charged material. Chunn creates visual metaphors for political and social commentary that mine both tragedy and comedy. Her work traces a trajectory from reality to the sublime, to the absurd.
