Nancy Dwyer

The Age of the Death of Irony

The Age of the Death of Irony, 1988
Iron and wood

On View: June 2005 - Present

Through her work, artist Nancy Dwyer portrays ordinary components of everyday life in a new style that fuses the worlds of art and advertising. Making mostly paintings and large metal sculptures of powerful, memorable, and relevant one-word statements, Dwyer focuses less on the meaning of the work and more on the surface design and drama of the piece. In doing so, Dwyer uses computers to produce new fonts and to manipulate letters into complex spatial configurations. In her work, Dwyer seeks to portray the obvious and to make her ideas accessible to viewers.


The artist has exhibited her word sculptures, paintings and other works in numerous exhibitions around the world: Galleria Emi Fontana in Milan, Italy, John Weber Gallery in New York, NY, Galerie Renos in Paris, France, and many more.
