My representational works are rendered from carefully layered strips of translucent packing tape applied to backlit acrylic glass. Commercial tape being used as a wide brush, with the light offering shadow and depth to create a recognizable resemblance. I am mixing materials produced by technological society with themes derived from the media. Works are categorized into several archetypal groups: film noir stills, fragmented Hollywood rags, iconic objects of wealth and prestige from design history and from pop culture. Subjects broken into grids, pixels, and layers appear in a state of fragmentary fuzziness, appropriate to their origin in our shared collective memory. Made of a familiar material formed into a familiar image, I ask the viewer to recognize and complete the work, stimulating both memory and interpretation in the process.
