Biography   Joyce Pensato


Working with a palette that is primarily black and white, Joyce Pensato "explores emotional and psychological gray areas in her turbulent recasting of big, bouncy cartoon characters and stuffed animals as randy rogues of dubious intent."  Much of her work is a "commentary on the American Dream gone sour", and she has a strong following in Europe, especially France.  Some critics suggest that the cartoon figures she creates are ones with which she personally identifies, both for their gusto and their neuroses.

Many of these characters have faces with expressions ranging from leering to outright positive enthusiasm and wonder.  She often uses familiar cartoon names from Warner Brothers and Disney such as Mickey, Snoopy,   ...  Displaying 750 of 1479 characters.
