Looking like a brilliant burst of light set in a background with a range of blues, 'Proof (2)' is a prime example of Joy Garnett's approach to reincorporating violence into beautifully painted compositions.

In large scale paintings filled with bursting colors and astral patterns, Joy Garnett (b.1983) filters today’s imagery of war, natural disasters, and man-made catastrophes. Garnett uses paint as a medium for its rich historical significance in order to further emphasize the threat of loss due to violence despite our geographical locations. Bringing relevance to destruction, her pieces expand the field of interpretation and signal viewers to reality. Garnett serves as the Arts Editor of the journal Cultural Politics and has exhibited her work at MoMA P.S. 1 and the Whitney Museum of American Art. She is represented by the Winkleman Gallery in New York.
