I study pop culture history with fine art photography of consumer products.
Instead of responding to the traditional themes and objects captured by master still life photographers and painters, my work responds to the pop cultural objects people in my generation grew up with. Video game cartridges instead of fruits. Cigarette packages instead of flowers. Bright Saturday morning cartoon aesthetics, instead of Chiaroscuro aesthetics. Allegories about pop culture arranged with manufactured Duchampian objects. I advertise pop culture history with fine art photography of consumer products.
A mixed media synthesis that blurs boundaries. Utilizing elements of paintings, illustrations, and sculpture to create still life artworks.
