Texas native, Nick Flatt is known for his large-scale photorealistic portraits. Flatt typically makes work around themes of conspicuous consumption, celebrity culture, and anti-consumerism, however with this new body of work he examines the PC movement. Producing the new series at the epicenter of PC culture, San Francisco, Flatt proposes an empowering yet somewhat ominous vantage point. Will this movement that is bringing about rapid, constructive change get hi-jacked and be used as a means of rhetoric domination, or will the patriarchal means of dominance be dissolved to create a more equitable society?
