Robert McCann: Subtext Sprawl

Christopher Lowrance blogs images from the exhibition Robert McCann: Subtext Sprawl at the University of Kansas' Art and Design Gallery, on view through September 15, 2011.

McCann writes: "My most recent group of paintings began with ideas about how modern technology and science make it easier for people to be superstitious, and broader themes of self image and willful self deception. But what came out of the making process had to do with the ways people fit into and echo their environment, and what the current urban sprawl and strip mall place looks like."
