Dan Gunn

Dan Gunn was born in suburban Kansas.

 HIs practice processes imagery from the American Midwestern rural vernacular. Wood-paneled basements, cheap roadside memorabilia of the West, and signs of agrarian culture are the norm. Gunn’s work investigates the ideological function of his cultural inheritance, both for political purposes but also for a formulation of male subjectivity.  The Ungrateful Son series is an attempt to construct a different contemporary image from the past, a kind of strategic anachronism that forgoes idealization, and is therefore more accurate to the present.
