Cannings is best known for her brightly colored, realistic depictions
of plastic toy guns. Constantly seduced by the colors and textures of an
omnipotent consumer culture, she gleans from a multitude of
stimuli—from shiny plastic objects wrapped in equally alluring plastic
wrapping, to obsessive reflections on color theory. But, Cannings is not
just concerned with the formal aspects of the work. On the contrary,
she engages the viewer to explore the complexities of a gun culture that
has become more and more pervasive in everyday America.
