The subject for this series explores the lines between instinct and rationality. I started with reading a group of metaphysic articles, then I reacted to them through my paintings. The articles discussed the subject 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.
Here I decided to combine my two favorite subject matters; patterns and the color pink. Within those guidelines I began to experiment. 1960’s illustration was a big influence for me, Peter Max especially.
I have officially developed an obsession with truckers, semi-trucks, and everything alike. Where do truckers call home? Is it the tin can they spend 85% of their time in? Or is it where they end up when the journey is finally over?
I titled this “10-16,” the police code for domestic violence. I would like you to take this as you will.
I had so much fun with this one! I decided to recreate the Burger King logo and use to make a potential wild posting for the company. The first photo is the original poster, and the second one is a pattern within the poster I decided to expand. They are meant to be promotional material for Burger King, displayed in different neighborhoods within an urban environment.
