PAMELA PHATSIMO SUNSTRUM — BATTLECRY

In this latest body of work, I am interested in the fragility of the hero; the ways in which the hero is both heroic and anti-heroic; both a victor and a perpetrator who can experience violence but also cause violence. I am interested in the moment when the hero, despite being on the field of battle, cannot help but become soft, must go inward, must cry. — Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum*

BATTLECRY—an exhibition of new paintings by Sunstrum—is now on view in London. These large scale works investigate, among other things, histories of post-colonial portraiture and romanticist landscape paintings.
