Influenced by the films of George A. Romero and the societal chaos in a post-Katrina New Orleans, Chad Robertson’s suite of untitled paintings from 2006 feature ambiguous actions frozen in a moment of time. The uncertainty as to whether these figures are a threat or benign reinforces the idea that society exists on the cusp between order and disaster and that people often resemble the “mindless” figure of the zombie without having made the living-dead turn.
