The Work of Hannah Antalek

September 11, 2014

Hannah Antalek's work is an exploration and critique of America that references pop culture and consumerism with social and political undercurrents. She attempts to bridge the divide of high and low art by using tacky colors and cliche or kitschy iconography in contrast with sanctified or stereotypically beautiful imagery. This juxtaposition aims to reinforce the cynical yet humorous attitude towards her subject.
