The subject matter for this gouache series explores the lines between instinct and rationality. I read a group of metaphysic articles then reacted to them by creating these paintings. The articles discussed the subjects of rationality in relation to topics like sexuality, masculinity, and groups (societies/cultures).
With that knowledge I created a new world.
The time and location of this world is unknown. All that is known is that there was a city, now abandoned and occupied by primitive beings. Occupants who once lived in the city fled to it’s outskirts for a new life.
I decided to combine my two favorite subject matters; patterns and the color pink. Within those guidelines I began to experiment.

I had so much fun with this one! I decided to recreate the Burger King logo. The first photo is the original poster, and the second one is a pattern within the poster I decided to expand. The posters are meant to be promotional material for Burger King.
