Marcus Kenney's Americana
a reflection on the contemporary 

May 23 – August 28, 2014

Typical of Kenney's collaged works, these images are created using a variety of materials scavenged by the artist. Trained as a photographer, he began creating collages with non-traditional art materials such as old wallpaper, greeting cards, cancelled checks, stamps and cigar stickers as a way to learn to paint. Many feature children engaged in unexpected activities or unsettling surroundings as they enjoy play time in a desert or catapulting into space on the back on a rocket. Their presence within these environments, their exchanges with one another and their activities often leave the viewer with more questions than answers, provoking a sense of wonder. These images are also charged with social, racial, ecological, political and psychological issues.
