Maggie Meiners is a Chicago-based artist whose work investigates American culture through the deconstruction and appropriation of art and artifacts. Inspired by American painter Norman Rockwell’s illustrative paintings of the early-to-mid twentieth century, Meiners restages Rockwell’s compositions to create contemporary depictions of current social issues. In Girl Interrupted (2012), Meiners reimagines the 1954 painting Girl at Mirror as a photograph, updating the fashion magazine and facial expressions to a more sinister portrayal of contemporary girlhood. Meiners has stated: “For better or worse, that while the sociological landscape has changed in many ways, there is much that remains the same.”
