New York-based artist Barnaby Furnas (b. 1973) monumental and tradition-bound subjects have evolved from historical events to more mythical and religious iconography, tackling the more dramatic themes of the human condition. His most recent exhibition at Marianne Boesky Gallery featured a new body of paintings that both encapsulated and questioned deeply-held mythologies of American identity, from representations of the rugged terrain of the West and the legendary explorers who settled it, to symbols of patriotism and those marking the country’s image of wholesomeness.
