Oil and Acrylic Paintings 2009
Junior Year Paintings
Below are a series of basketball paintings I did as a response to consumerism of sneakers in connection to status symbolism of the basketball industry. The backgrounds were photo silk screened on wood with players painting in acrylic. I also completed a large painting of the droping of the Atomic bomb below.
Tom Hanks Series
I'm not sure why but Tom Hank's name just sounds strange and builds on my tongue. Every time I repeat his full name moderately my mouth feels full of pronunciation. I can't help it. So I did a 5 stage painting series of his portrait changing every time I repeat his name. Hs image practically evaporates as I keep saying his name. This is the order in which his face morphs as I repeat it.
