    Art Description:

    The American Dream sequence is an homage to Pop Art and its critique of consumerism as culture. The phrase The American Dream is rooted in the U.S. Declaration of Independence, which proclaims that "all men are created equal" with the right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. In prosperous post WW2 America the ideals seemed to be exchanged for the pursuit of commercialism. Obviously Art is imbedded in this Capitalist conundrum so these paintings a self reflective critiques as well. Trojan Horses on the open market. Framed in a pickled white wooden shadowbox frame.

    Medium Used: Oil and Latex on Canvas

    A body of work should not be a cadaver evidencing life that was but rather the flash-point for life which ignites anew on each renewed encounter.
