Wink Wink, Bang Bang: 'Friday Night Gun Fight'

September 24, 2008

WHO SAYS POLITICAL art has to be all serious? Michael Scoggins‘ message in “Friday Night Gun Fight” is all business, but his playful delivery could have visitors cracking up. Large-scale notebook pages that look as if they’ve been ripped from a second-grader’s homework proclaim messages like “I <3 My Gun." In another work, a drawing of the United States being menaced by a hairy monster is accompanied by the caption, "Boogyman is going to get us!"
