Toward a More Perfect Union

Root Division is thrilled to partner with our neighbors at ODC by curating the theater lobby with the work of our Studio Artists and Affiliates.   This season, we present the work of Julie Sutherland.  Sutherland’s work consists of paintings and drawings that use pre-existing visual material to examine issues of power, violence, gender, patriotism and the American West. Her sources range from historic American portraiture, war and war trial photography, to patterns, textiles, and European art history.

The works in Julie Sutherland’s Union series playfully reconstruct figures of American history by combining portraits of US presidents and First Ladies. With images garnered from the Library of Congress collections, each portrait reflects the face of the First Lady, with elements from her husband’s portrait and related visual information. These inter-subjective portraits challenge dominant historical narratives, and explore issues of gender and power in American history. Coded in a language of Americana patterning, and symbols associated with Indian Wars, western expansion, art history, and contemporary visual culture, Sutherland’s work actively creates new mythologies surrounding these recognizable historical figures.
