Text by Brian Butler, Meg Cranston, Nico Israel, Tirdad Zolghadr, Carol Ann Klonarides.
Meg Cranston's work often combines text and imagery from popular culture. With Kippenberger-esque energy and wit, Cranston investigates anthropological and physical issues in sculpture, installation, painting and drawing. Recent shows have featured, for instance, drawings and sculptures of bad teeth and their imagined physiognomic significance, a large composite photograph of an average-size American and a performance about the life of Marvin Gaye. This first monograph on Cranston's work includes texts by Carole Ann Klonarides and Tirdad Zolghadr, as well as an interview with the artist by Nico Israel. Published with Artspace, Auckland, New Zealand.
Meg Cranston has shown internationally since 1988. She has been the recipient of a New School of Social Research Faculty Development Grant, an artist grant from the Penny McCall Foundation, a Guggenheim Fellowship and a faculty research grant from the Center for Asian American Studies at UCLA.
