For his first solo exhibition in the United States, Keith Mayerson (1966, Cincinnati, OH) will present more than 100 paintings that offer a distinctive view of the American Dream at a critical moment in our sociopolitical landscape.
Peppered with images of the artist's family, including his husband Andrew, Mayerson creates an earnest and progressive portrait of American values and prosperity. Mayerson is noted for his expressive, figurative paintings based mostly on photographs, magazines, books, newspapers, films, and his own archive.
The work ranges from paintings that celebrate the sublime beauty of America's landscape to those reflecting traumatic moments that redefined American culture.
