Bubble Gum on Art: Death, 2021 - 2022

The Bubble Gum on Art Series consists of small paintings depicting bubble gum painted over images that were removed from old editions of art history textbooks, which depict those artworks in black and white.

The painted bubble gum masks a prominent part of the composition (which could be the primary focal point, but in some cases, is the secondary or tertiary) to hint at a transformation—from black & white to color, appropriation to original, high to low, masking to potential, and serious to whimsy.

They are arranged, or grouped, according to bubble gum coverings that are “alike” or are similar.
