Megan Rye's brother, a sculptor and a Marine, came home from Iraq with thousands of images shot on his small, digital camera. Megan's paintings of those images are not quite photorealistic--instead taking on an almost comic book quality. I'm both a human being and a comic book geek, so the show resonated with me. The figure in my favorite painting in the series, Alien , seems to carry all sorts of cultural weight--Snake Eyes from G.I. Joe , the Tusken Raiders from Star Wars . Both terrifying and heroic. Or not, depending on what you bring to the piece yourself--that's the heavy thing with politics and art. In this way, the show is a departure for Ralph Burnet, the owner of Chambers and the Burnet Gallery. Burnet is known for collecting what can probably now be referred to as the masters of the apolitical, audacious Young British Artists movement. We also talk at the tail end of the video.
