INSPIRATIONS + OBSERVATIONS
CLEARLY MARILYN, was an exciting group of paintings to create for a combination of reasons. There was a new process, new materials, and I was able to fulfill a conceptual meaning all at the same time. Moreover, my painting process is forever looking for ways to incorporate printmaking-- fascinated with printmaking's laborious techniques, its requirements of layers, its mastery use of shapes, etc. Your first assumption may lead you to blame Andy Warhol for this, but it was a printmaking course that -- quite possibly-- rewired my brain forever.
Conceptually, repetition is a major theme throughout this series. Inundated by visual culture's imagery, I ask if we take enough of a critical view of these images. Seemingly harmless, but what are the implications of these images? How do they influence our meaning-making process? Do they influence out decision making? And just how do these silent, persistent imageries sneak by our analytical selves? Perhaps, repetition is the avenue that leads right into our subconscious.
