INSPIRATIONS + OBSERVATIONS

MARILYN NO FILTER was the fifth painting in my series of pop inspired work. Being heavily influenced by Andy Warhol, I thought it was time to go back and rediscover my passions for the work. In flipping through a standard Pop Art book, I found myself stuck on Andy's portrait of Marilyn. Curious at the power of art and its ability to marry these two icons into our working memories forever-- I questioned Andy's interest in Marilyn as a subject, was it in her life or in her death?  Consequently, thoughts on greatness, repetition, consumption, and influence, etc. started bubbling to the surface and so I knew I had to proceed with a series of work. But most importantly, it is my point of view that it is our responsibility to examine our Visual Culture-- instead of just consuming 'it' that drives my passion throughout the series. 

MARILYN NO FILTER was created with a craving to see who the Marilyn is without a camera. With hundreds upon hundreds of staged photographs, I found myself eager to know the 'real' Marilyn. So I took a and image and superimposed a reflection, suggesting a quiet moment of staring out a window-- a moment we have all had and could empathize with.
