Biography

Drawing from Pop Art, Steven Gagnon borrows and subverts American and art historical iconography to question contemporary consumerism. By layering symbols related to past and present popular culture and visual art, Gagnon addresses issues of identity, industry, and ecology—and the economic systems that connect them. Most of his high-contrast paintings, prints, and sculptures combine incongruous imagery in order to, in Gagnon’s words, “expose the common thread that runs through a land known for its diversity and extremes.”
