- FORGETTABOUT IT?, Joyce Pensato?s second exhibition with Lisson Gallery, features an entirely new body of work, encompassing large-scale paintings, drawings and a site-specific wallpaper installation. The exhibition sees the return of Pensato?s familiar cast of cartoon characters while marking important new developments in the artist?s practice in terms of movement, colour and scale. 00An alumna of the New York Studio School in the 1970s, where she was mentored by influential artists including Mercedes Matter and Joan Mitchell, Pensato challenged the school?s strict figurative life drawing practice and painted directly from cardboard cut-outs, dolls and photographs as a replacement for the traditional fruit of still lifes. Her humorous, innovative and critical translation of comic-book imagery, combined with a ferocious application of paint, positions Pensato between the illustrative figuration of Pop Art and the gestural physicality of Abstract Expressionism. 00Exhibition: Lisson Gallery, London, UK (19.05.-24.06.2017).Includes bibliographical references.Published on the occasion of the exhibitions Joyceland, March 26-May 10, 2014 and Forgettabout it, May 19-June 24, 2017 held at Lisson Gallery.
