WORK OF THE WEEK: "What is Often Kept Secret" by John Joseph Hanright

John Joseph Hanright
What is Often Kept Secret
Mixed media on panel, 48 x 48 inches

Contemporary Pop Artist John Joseph Hanright creates mixed media works that imaginatively explore imagery and concepts of American life.  Incorporating ephemera from his extensive collection of 1940-1960’s vintage publications, Hanright’s work is layered with collage, text and paint which are composed to tell a story. His work is meant to engage the viewer and allow them to impart their own interpretation of the composition.

As Hanright explains, ''my work is thought provoking, sometimes sexy and inspired by experience and visuals lost and found. This mixing of imagery and symbols in paint and mixed media combine to form pieces with a twist and discovery. The art can be a combination of conceptual art, American Art, pop culture and derived from life in the 50's to present day. I present bold imagery with subtleties and simplicity to contradict and poke fun. My engagement in my work is with thought, energy and impulsive risks.''

This painting will be featured at our upcoming exhibition in the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, open March 19-22 at Piers 92 & 94 in New York City. Click HERE for more information about the Architectural Digest show.
