Art work Description:
This body of work began with simple drawing studies of highway interchanges under construction. Before long, I was manipulating and fragmenting them into isolated knots of empty overpasses, seemingly being constructed and abandoned at the same time. The paintings that followed seemed to develop with inherent contradictions contained within: Road completions through misalignment, concrete dressed with the colors and words of fantasy, romanticism meeting the cold, hard pavement. I associate these images with the experience of growing up in a modern culture of speed that in itself is full of contradiction, where techno-progress can bring both efficiency and connectedness while at the same time confusion and isolation, where the acceleration of everything begets equal measures of hope and fear, and where the future seems ready to demand what cannot possibly achieved: "Instant Harmony," "Perfect Love." The dream of a perfected future, given birth by technology, seems to mirror the optimism and fantasy of a new romance. This notion has me equally amused and intrigued, which moves me to cloak our iconic ribbons of progress with a sweet coating of sardonic candy.
