Artist spotlight: 'In My Room — Joan Ryan and The Indoctrination of Violence'

Every year on September 11, teachers across America show the footage of the towers falling and people jumping. Thuds of bodies and crumbling towers become part of the yearly routine. Joan Ryan captures this feeling of the normalcy of violence in her art. Ryan is a professor of drawing and painting at Lesley University School of Art and Design. Her most recent work is a reflection on societal pressures the world has impressed upon her children. Violence is omnipresent in American culture, and the way children metabolize the images and stories presented to them serve as the framework of Ryan’s work. Her paintings show apparently simple children’s rooms, but when observed more closely they are detailed with discomfort and glazed with gunshots.
