WASHED UP 2015-16

WASHED UP is a series of diluted ink drawings, often little more than dirty water leaving faint stains of imagery that emerge and dissolve in elaborate compositions on the threshold of incoherence.  The interlocking objects are the toys of childhood, political kitsch bobble-head figurines, religious tchotchkes, replica artifacts and souvenirs of Western Culture—often idealistic symbols of egalitarian Democracy.
