Jansson Stegner

 "Great Plains"

 "The Ascetic"

"The Peacemaker"


Jansson Stegner combines romanticized beauty with pop culture's glamorized depictions of violence and cheap heroicism in TV shows like COPS. His paintings of police, with their exaggerated limbs and vulnerable positions, contradict the connotations of their uniform in odd and hilarious ways. Of course, this manipulated portrayal of generic power also undermines traditional ideas about authority.
