Kammy Roulner
American, born 1965

Admitting to agoraphobia, therapy sessions, and a lack of friends, Kammy Roulner reveals that she is insecure and inhabits a flawed universe. Her signature cartoon-like line drawings grapple with fears and social pressures, rendering them relatable and even endearing. Some, such as a 2009 ink-on-paper series, are caustically funny, satirizing the pomp of the art world by drawing on clichéd images and overheard or imagined conversations. Similarly humorous, yet touching upon the more profound subject of race, “Colored People” (2001) is a series of enlarged baseball cards featuring players with surnames that encompass most colors of the rainbow—David Green, Chris Brown, Vida Blue—and suggest the arbitrariness of race and names.
