Art Description

Painting: Oil, Enamel, Screenprinting on Paper.

This is an original hand painted and silkscreened, unique one-of-a-kind artwork.

I have created a loosely connected group of artworks which take as their subjects vintage advertising images, comic book art, the human body, consumer products, iconic imagery, politics, classic Disney illustration, cowboy culture and pixel-glitched computer data corruption.

I have appropriated source material from history, social media, pop culture, art history, old newspapers, the local shopping mall and even hospital radiology files and I use oil paint, enamel and screen printing as a means to mechanically fix these images in stark contrast to the designer logos and fashion brands worshipped by consumers. These works are a critical take on the haves versus the have-nots. I am 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? Hopefully art that takes collectors to new and sometimes nostalgic and introspective places.
