Philomena Marano has spent decades “penetrat[ing] the soul of Coney Island to reveal its twin promises of candy-colored paradise and garishly ornate nightmare,” as she describes, through the prints and cut-paper collage in her “American Dream-land” series (1979-). These colorful, cartoon-style works evoke the energy and amusement of Coney Island through depictions of the rides, the boardwalk, clowns, and food vendors. Many are large-scale papier collé installations, a technique Marano learned from Robert Indiana, in whose studio she once assisted. In conjunction with “American Dream Land,” in 1981 Marano and Richard Eagen co-founded the Coney Island Hysterical Society, which undertakes projects such as restoring old rides in response to the alarming rate at which they were shutting down in the fabled amusement park of their childhood.
