Joyce Pensato: I KILLED KENNY-the artist's first museum survey-brings together recent work with seminal earlier pieces. The exhibition features a monumental site-specific mural as well as charcoal drawings and key paintings made between 1990 and the present. Pensato's gestural paintings and drawings appropriate iconic American cartoon characters, combining menacing abstraction with comedic representation. Through her dynamic application of paint and pop cultural references, Pensato's compositions boldly extend the possibilities of action painting.
