Art Description

Painting: Oil, Enamel, Screenprinting on Paper.

"Mickey Mouse Disaster in Acqua" is a 22” x 30” original painting on paper and is part of my Luxurious Disaster: A 21st Century Tale of Love, Fame & Tragedy series of pop artworks. I have created a loosely connected group of artworks which take as their subjects vintage advertising images, 19th Century medical skull etchings, comic book art, Mickey Mouse, 20th Century Americana, the human body, consumer products and fashion luxury brands, iconic imagery, politics, prescription drugs and the concept of failing technology through pixel-glitched computer data corruption.

These original hand-painted and silkscreened, unique one-of-a-kind artworks appropriate source material from iconic mid-century artists such as Andy Warhol, social media, pop culture, art history, vintage newspapers and the local shopping mall. I use oil paint, enamel and screen printing as a means to fix my images on Fabriano Premium 300gsm heavy Italian cotton paper which is mould-made and acid free, guaranteeing extremely long conservation over time. These works are a critical take on the haves versus the have-nots while maintaining a sense of humor. I'm attempting to fuse separate worlds together — the explosive and visual power of wealth, fashion and money juxtaposed against the grit of conflict, politics and power. The result? I hope art that takes collectors to new and sometimes nostalgic and introspective places.
