Cris Worley Fine Arts presents Shannon Cannings: "Triggered" opening reception
Cris Worley Fine Arts will present Shannon Cannings: "Triggered," featuring new works in oil on canvas. Cannings is best known for her brightly colored, realistic depictions of plastic toy guns. Constantly seduced by the colors and textures of an omnipotent consumer culture, she gleans from a multitude of stimuli, from shiny plastic objects wrapped in equally alluring plastic wrapping, to obsessive reflections on color theory.
But Cannings is not just concerned with the formal aspects of the work. On the contrary, she engages the viewer to explore the complexities of a gun culture that has become more and more pervasive in everyday America.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through March 23.
