Collection Note:

In Cey Adams’ Trusted Brands series, the artist explores our fascination and hypnotic relationship with brand loyalty. The images, characters, and mascots in these pieces are used as a metaphor to analyze larger questions about the “Celebration” of American culture.

“At first glance, like pictures in a book or magazine, my paintings are very recognizable. Your eyes and brain tell you what you’re seeing is familiar. Feelings of comfort and nostalgia take over. Push in closer and hidden messages are revealed, raising questions about our values, consumerism, race, gender, class, and history.” – Cey Adams
