Post-Americana: New Paintings
Susan Bee

March 10 - March 28, 1998

The works in Post Americana revolve around appropriated figurative images as well as other found material. The collage and assemblage elements include advertisements, children's stickers, decals, paper dolls, insects, snakes, postcards and movie posters. The paintings involve narrative fragments in combination with multiple layers of paint. Bee's paintings ironically explore popular culture representations of post-colonial icons, both through the depiction of "exotic" motifs such as Tikis and hula girls, and symbols of the american revolution such as the eagle, the Liberty bell, and Paul Revere. 

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 14, 6-8pm
