Chapter Series, 2003 - 2010

Each artwork from this series is based on a chapter from “From Modernism to Postmodernism, An Anthology.”  Phrases that retain the essence of the philosophical idea are combined with quotes from contemporary pop culture (usually a TV Show.)  These quotes are combined in a spontaneous manner (as some are calculated, but quickly) with images of toys from my childhood, painting effects, and art historical references.
