Toronto artist Kendra Sartorelli’s works are inspired by popular culture, the glow of television and computer screens, neon signs, billboards and magazines of today’s mass media. (Above: Monster No.3, acrylic on canvas)
I enjoy the irony of finding references to low culture in a fine art environment. My current work is a series of acrylic paintings. The imagery in my work is original, yet contains features of various monsters found in many B-movies and horror films. I also use the recognizable forms of speech and thought bubbles, which are often found in comic books and mass media advertisements. –Artist Statement (Above: Gary, you don’t want to hurt anybody!)
