Cris Worley Fine Arts presents Shannon Cannings, painter

Feb. 16-March 23

Cris Worley Fine Arts is pleased to announce Shannon Cannings: Triggered featuring new works in oil on canvas.

Shannon Cannings is best known for her brightly colored, realistic depictions of plastic toy guns. Constantly seduced by the colors and textures of an omnipotent consumer culture, she gleans from a multitude of stimuli—from shiny plastic objects wrapped in equally alluring plastic wrapping, to obsessive reflections on color theory. But, Cannings is not just concerned with the formal aspects of the work. On the contrary, she engages the viewer to explore the complexities of a gun culture that has become more and more pervasive in everyday America.
