Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

There are few artists on the contemporary landscape that have the immediacy of Nina Chanel Abney. A painter by training and now explorining collage and printmaking as mediums, Abney has traversed the landscape of social conscious picture-making with both a keen critique of America and, at times, confrontational nature of challenging ideas of identity and selfhood. Don’t let the colors fool you. Don’t even let the bright objects obscure the message. Abney is telling a story, an American story, and in both abstraction and figuration, through various mediums and practices, delving deep into our collective psyche.
