2003 - 2012
In the midst of an entirely barren and empty "landscape", void of anything other than a multitude of sugar coated inhabitants. The many shapes and sizes, parts and pieces of a greater whole come together to construct towering mountains, pillars of sugary strength and the destructive forces of confectionery whirlwinds and tsunamis. A flawed yet functional infrastructure, A conglomerate society of multi-colored temptations, vying for the same hierarchical position at the top of the heap.
These paintings represent our relationship with one another in a society in which success is measured largely by one’s ability to consume. The “sweets” and household detritus are representative and are essentially a replacement or stand-in for the human figure. I attempt to portray the fragility and precariousness of our situation through these works.
