The exhibition’s title invokes the vernacular of “South Park,” framing Joyce Pensato’s visual vocabulary within the cartoon’s sardonic wit and cultural critique. Appropriating iconic American cartoon characters as her point of departure, Pensato’s gestural paintings and drawings flicker in the liminal space between menacing abstraction and comedic representation: Batman is depicted as a hollow, deliquescent mask, Bart Simpson peers through abraded skin, and Felix the Cat is rendered as a decapitated head.
