Greg Mac Gregor
Aimed Flood Lights

About

Greg Mac Gregor's artwork incorporates official, declassified photographs from the Los Alamos National Laboratory Photographic Archives produced in the early 1950s at the Nevada Test Site during the atmospheric testing era. At the time, the US Army tested various scenarios with mannequins to adjudicate and record the effect an atomic explosion may have on objects within the test site’s blast radius. Mac Gregor skillfully colorizes these scenes using a style and palette similar to hand-colored postcards popular at the time. The color is realistic but flat, yielding a reflection of the era while injecting emotional content into the image. The result is a series of haunting, nostalgic, and dystopian tableaux.
