Cory Sanderson, Senior Exhibition 2010 An untitled drawing with acrylic paint on vellum by Cory Sanderson, W. Newton, Mass.

Proceeding from an interest in depictions of the human form, Sanderson combines drawing, collage and monoprinting to manipulate advertisements. “I chose images of men that I consider iconic” — gun-toting movie stars — “and poke fun at them by manipulating them to subvert that masculinity,” he says. In a sense, his artwork is anti-advertising, layering images to provoke new perceptions about gender representation.
