Greetings from the American Dream
RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA  •  Riverside Art Museum  •  Ongoing
This exhibition of painting, photography, and conceptual sculpture examines the demystification of American consumerism. According to the organizers The American Dream is a landscape and a thingscape and a peoplescape, a paring-down of what is seen in reality – as in Donnie Molls’ desert-spare groupings of people and trees and objects – or a ramping-up of the noise in our visual culture – as in Jay Merryweather’s rain of commercial logos falling on individuals or Greg Miller’s signposted, billboarded painterly survey of the lay of the land – or a view of the landscape befogged by material itself, as in Timothy Ernst’s glitter-flecked western scene. D. J. Hall’s seemingly celebratory depictions of poolside life, every babe of every age bedecked in the requisite sunglasses, are pointed in their very innocuousness, and Sean Duffy’s LP collection – itself recycling a technology that is oh so last century - loses the music for the image of the musician, “artists” pimped by an industry that could barely care less about “art.”
