Nancy Dwyer seizes upon words like loaded weapons, transforming them into sculpture and decoration. Creatively astute, she is recognized as a member of “The Pictures Generation,” alongside Cindy Sherman and Robert Longo. Complimentary colors in her piece Welcome, a silkscreen on aluminum, both highlight and disguise the secret message: KEEP OUT. Most recently, Dwyer was the focus of a solo exhibition at Sandra Geirng Inc. in New York. She has also been featured in exhibitions at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Australia.

Nancy Dwyer (b. 1954) is an American contemporary artist whose works include paintings, works on paper, public art, furniture art and word sculpture, which typically orient themselves around single, socially charged words such as “killer,” “body,” and “food,” and critique capitalist values. Nancy Dwyer has been exhibiting her works worldwide. As well as numerous solo exhibits, Dwyer has shown work at major museums, including most “The Pictures Generation” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, along with the Whitney Museum of American Art, MOCA Los Angeles, the Contemporary Art Museum in Houston, Texas, the Kunsthalle Wein, Austria, The Dunedin Public Art Gallery in New Zealand and the New Museum of Contemporary Art in NYC.
