Information Age


This series of paintings, collages, and sculptures was started in 1992 and it continues to be a format that I return to whenever I have something to say in the text/image context. "Information Age" focuses on the juxtaposition of how text/ image or sometimes image/image come together to help us understand our world. Specifically, fragments of information are collaged to visually mimic the way our mind puts together simple information (sometimes from divergent sources) into a complex understanding and knowledge. This concept could be seen as a postmodern strategy or the visual equivalent of deconstruction, but the viewer will also perceive a light hearted, playful quality to the artwork. The idea for this series really comes out of feeling that the "arts" and artists take it all a little too seriously. Visual Art is about the viewer's experience as well as the artist's agenda. I hope you will enjoy the fun.
