American Art Catalogues, 2021.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition "Dress Up My Lindsay" at Public Access Gallery, St.Marks Place, NYC (March/April 2021), a solo exhibition of recent paintings by Marika Thunder. The ten oil paintings depict a series of collages Thunder created during the artist’s adolescence of pop icon Lindsay Lohan are paired with the source material for each painting previously bound within a scrapbook culled from tabloid magazines. Each collage is overlaid with childlike commentary in black ink. Thunder is revisiting these nascent drawings as an adult, which inspired an exploration of her internalization of pop culture through meditations in oil paint. Item #20716
