ARTCAL. Party Headquarters at Pratt, 10.29.08

Yaelle Amir 

The lighter, more ironic projects in the exhibition juxtapose political figures with pop icons in order to critique the country’s current state of affairs. Dan Mills presents three watercolor drawings that are each composed of two superimposed figures—an individual from the Bush administration and a cartoon character. The outgoing secretarty of state emerges from the shadow of a femme fatale in Condoleezza Fatale (2006),while Dick Cheney sits upon the majectic chair of the Simpson’s evil Mr. Burns in Dick [Burns] (2006).
