Shamus Clisset | Chris Kienke

March 16, 2017 - April 14, 2017

Mr. Realistic 
Shamus Clisset (aka FakeShamus) is a New York based artist working with 3D media, including modeling, rendering, and animation. His pictures reflect a mash-up of pop culture imagery, frontier iconography, objects and environments culled from American suburbia, and his own personal history and obsessions. Themes of violence, manifest destiny, and the contemporary wasteland are all refracted through the prism of digital culture.
 
Hotrods and Handguns co-opts the shiny veneer of American patriotism and Hollywood action films: the flag, fireworks, stars and stripes, red, white and blue, explosions, hot rods and handguns in a very literal manner. The “over the top” nature of this Hotrods and Handguns project is both a celebration of this great nation and a critique of nationalistic attitudes about patriotism, which influences current debates
ranging from ideas about freedom and citizenship to how we as a society respond to gun violence.
