About the piece:
Based on a news image in an article about border towns.

Joy Garnett studied painting at L'Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and received her MFA from The City College of New York. She appropriates news and documentary images from the Internet and re-invents them as paintings. Her subject is both the content of these found images and the digital image itself as cultural artifact in an Internet-driven culture. Recent exhibitions include solo shows at Winkleman Gallery, NY (2008) and "Strange Weather" at the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC (2007), and group exhibiions "That Was Then...This Is Now,"  P.S.1/MoMA, and "Image War" organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art (2006). She is a 2004 recipient of a grant from the Anonymous Was a Woman foundation, and currently serves as arts editor for the journal Cultural Politics. She is represented by Winkleman Gallery, New York City.
