Shannon Cannings & Jessica Dunegan – Guns and Chandeliers

“Guns and Chandeliers” is a dual show featuring work from Shannon Cannings and Jessica Dunegan. Gallery Imperato in Baltimore is the setting for the exhibition.

Shannon Cannings - Trigger Happy

Shannon Cannings paints fairly large reproductions of children’s toys. For “Guns and Chandeliers” Cannings has focused on plastic toy guns. At this scale, the toys may be interpreted as powerful weapons. The use of a bright palette solidifies the enticement to the controversial subject matter.

Shannon Cannings - Fun and Games

The layered resin paintings of Jessica Dunegan will also be on display as part of this exhibit. The chandelier has been a symbol of status dating back to a time when indoor lighting was considered a luxury. The garish fixtures seem out of place in the modern home and are perhaps best left to artistic interpretation.

Jessica Dunegan - Anita

The two part resin dries thick and crystal clear creating the sensation that light is emitting from the structure embedded in the surface. The contrast between subject and material is strong in this work. Take delight in the delicate imagery set in material commonly used as floor sealant.

Jessica Dunegan - Warren
