The exhibition titled “MY PEN IS HUGE” featuring the works of artist Amanda Ross-Ho is currently on view at Mitchell-Innes & Nash, New York.
The show features installation, sculptures, and paintings by the Los Angeles-based artist. The exhibition also features an installation of works that the artist created on-site at the gallery during the month of August this includes fabricated, oversized objects, and a series of paintings based on water that Ross-Ho created last year. The title is derived from the novelty T-shirt design that became popular in the 1970s and 80s. The wordplay might be looked at as a juvenile yet regressive snapshot of contemporary American life where topics like scale, power, and true meaning are mutable constructs. Through reclaiming and appropriating the phrase the artist takes back the pen.
