#Repost @ernicorinne• • • • • •Jeremy Dennis’ Pizza Box, 2018, was just featured in the 3 Day Weekend exhibition at The Fireplace Project in Springs, East Hampton. Jeremy’s work always gets me, the way he seems to depict an everyday situation, until you realize something is not quite right. It digs deep into the American Psyche, and this, too, speaks to the very times we live in.This work is part of a series called ‘Rise’, which Jeremy describes as follows: “Rise reflects upon the historical legacy of the Pequot War, King Philip’s War, and the fear of indigenous people in New England and later throughout the United States. Fear, in this instance, comes from the acknowledgment of our continued presence, not as an extinct people, but as sovereign nations who have witnessed and survived four hundred years of colonization. Playing with recognizable zombie film and TV show iconography, ‘Rise’ highlights parallels between the apocalyptic rising undead and popular misinformation of indigenous people as a vanished race.”@jeremynative @thefireplaceproject #jeremydennis #americanpsyche #nativeamerican #america2020
