My artwork explores popular brand imagery, celebrity culture and advertising which takes a critical view of social, political, and cultural issues. The paintings involve a combination of comic superhero mythology, popular children’s toys, desirable brand names, and totems of art history to create a visual language of evolution. The work is a juxtaposition of images, which are incorporated together to produce a personal contemporary explanation on consumer culture. I deconstruct the American dream by manipulating current issues within the media. The media is composed of oil paints and acrylic paint applied with an airbrush to produce a hyper realistic effect.
