Jim Shaw's paintings are striking fusions of pop culture, political histories, and found, scenic backdrops. The artist's varied approach has evolved over decades, with his recent work working with acrylics layered on muslin. Some of the works implement "theatrical scenic backdrops" purchased by Shaw, combining canvases from the 1940s and 1950s and his own style.
