Abstract/Artist's Statement

Today, little has been written about Cady Noland despite her scope and influence within the New York City artistic community. Due in part to the limited amount of material that exists on each show, and her early retirement from producing work in the late 1990’s. Today, very little is available on Cady Noland. Yet these limitations have only added to the myth of the artist.

Through interviews as well as primary source documents written during the years of 1989-1994,as well as a bootleg zine created on the artist by Will Boone. I have attempted to distill down the central meaning behind Cady Noland’s artwork in my eyes.

Through the examination of her, 1990, show at Luhring Augustine Hetzler. I have attempt to explore the language Cady Noland uses and the meaning behind specific works of art to better understand the notion of schizophrenic America.[1]

This project will be explore those specific components that make up the backbone of Cady Noland’s new American landscape.
