About the work
Nancy Chunn
American, b. 1941
Follow

With a dose of dark humor, New York artist Nancy Chunn explores the media’s role in America’s contemporary culture of fear. She creates work that references elements of the news, clip art, cartooning, and fairy tales. A recipient of two National Endowment for the Arts awards, Chunn spent the year of 1996 “editing” the front page of the New York Times every day. Using rubber stamps and pastels, the artist embellished and amended the images and text with symbols that could be recognized by people of all ages and regardless of the languages they spoke.
