Peter Gronquist’s American Mythic

by Emily BroughPosted on

Portland-based artist Peter Gronquist returns to the Bay Area, his stomping grounds until recently, for American Mythic, a solo exhibition at Gallery Hijinks. A full house of revelers packed the gallery on opening night to get a close look at his multi media sculptural works and paintings. Utilizing an assortment of materials which include oil paints, gold, grenades and the occasional baby deer, Peter creates pieces amalgamating imagery of violence, greed, branding and beauty. The result is a compelling parody of his views of American culture and ideals. Click through to see highlights from the show. American Mythic is up through April 30th. – Emily Brough
