Joyce Pensato Interview | Time Out


The New york-based artist told me about painting 'The Simpsons' and keeping things fresh for her Lisson Gallery show. 

What's been a constant inspiration? 

'I'm drawn to discarded stuff like toys that have a history. They give me something, I don't know, a connection.'

Are you satirising the candy coloured world of cartoons? 

‘I’m not political. I just don’t want the work to be nice or sweet. Disney’s cartoons are usually very sweet. I want the work to be deeper, to have more personality.’
