MARUANI MERCIER Artist at the fair Jaclyn Conley (b. 1979, United States of America) Lives and works in New Haven

In the series of paintings All The President’s Children, Jaclyn Conley references the archived photographs of First Ladies and Presidents sourced from Presidential Library collections in order to reimagine the American First Family as a symbol of the ‘American ideal’. Rather than creating a likeness, she uses the materiality of paint to communicate an inability to recognise these photographic images of the idyllic American life in contrast to the ever-present coverage of national conflicts and internal divisions.
