Jim Shaw is a masterful observer of the American psyche. A new set of drawings, sculptures, paintings and video work explores the rat wheels of our consumer cult, the ever-tightening noose of technology, our absurd political landscape, the high-jacking of religion for political gains, and the merciless influence of big money onto our political and cultural institutions. Shaw culls the imagery of his paintings and drawings from popular culture, history, religion, and social media. Dark, and bitingly sarcastic, they are meticulously detailed snapshots of a country that seems near the edge of a nervous breakdown. At Metro Pictures through December 22.
