Maiming the West: Paintings by Peter Adamyan

Published Sep 9, 2019

Earlier this year, Spoke Art gallery in San Francisco featured ‘Maiming the West’, a solo pop-up exhibition by Californian artist Peter Adamyan.

“Inspired by the exploited land and people of the western United States, Maiming the West tells the story of manifest destiny in post-Civil War America and how Reconstruction attempts failed in the South. My work explores loggers, miners, railroad workers, and ranchers; the way these American tycoons ‘tamed’ the land in an effort to profit from it, leaving a path of destruction, genocide, and extinction in their wake.”
