Artist of the moment…..Joyce Pensato

In this clip we visit a show featuring Joyce Pensato with our beloved art friend James Kalm a.k.a. Loren Munk:

Joyce Pensato is an American artist renown for her work with cartoon style figures done with a black and white palette. A more sinister side to all of our carton friends from Homer Simpson to Mickey Mouse is shown. Joyce Pensato was born in Brooklyn, New York in the year 1941.

Pensato works with enamels, charcoal, and pastels. She also makes installations which use stuffed animals.

Joyce Pensato was awarded a Guggenheim fellowship.

Also a winner of the Pollack-Krasner award.

Her work represents the American Dream gone sour and heading in the wrong direction. Perfect social commentary for a time when people are protesting against low pay and asking for an increase in the minimum wage.

Joyce Pensato is based out of Brooklyn, New York.
