About

'Baby' by Nina Chanel All Rights Reserved Hong Kong Sculpture , 2020 Vinyl 26 3/10 × 8 1/5 × 7 3/10 in 66.8 × 20.8 × 18.5 cm Edition of 1000 AllRightsReserved has tapped Nina Chanel Abney for a vinyl figure titled Baby. The New York-based artist has been known for her use of symbols and bright colors to create works with a playful aesthetic that often invites viewers to confront challenging topics related to race, gender, pop-culture, homophobia and politics. This piece follows the artist’s Boobies figure released last year. Standing 26.3 centimeters tall, Nina’s sculpture depicts a man wearing Mickey Mouse ears. The figure is dressed in a bright red jumpsuit, matching red circles stamped on the man’s cheeks. Constructed with sharp angles and an asymmetrical mold, the figure comes with a geometric silhouette with cubist-like features, like its slanted nose, alongside other crooked facial features, and skewed shoulders, which slimly taper off towards the feet. The figure comes in a monochromatic box detailed with a set of Nina’s illustrations of eyes, while a shiny ARR Authentication sticker is placed at the back. Addressing pop culture and racial conflicts, Nina Chanel Abney paints scenes rooted in autobiography, current events, and traditional storytelling. Driven by a fascination with the perceived importance of celebrity news as compared to politics, she works in a pop-surrealist style, employing cartoonish figures and playful compositions to echo the perpetual stimulation of the digital age. Abney’s paintings present new ways of approaching loaded topics and generating discussion, allowing viewers to come to their own conclusions. In the “Always a Winner” series, which addresses the Black Lives Matter movement, police batons are phallic symbols and clown makeup suggests racial distinctions. The series reflects the absurdity and information overload of the internet era and questions the ways in which people are affected by abuses of power.
