I was raised on saturday morning cartoons and sugar coated cereals. I am nostalgic for a life i never lived. I believe that somewhere along the way we lost a certain poetry to our lives... that the essence of beauty has been twisted too hard for too long... and somehow it has gone missing. I believe in the power of pop art. I believe that color will make us whole again. My art is derived from a fantasy of an ideal that was left behind in the 1950's. I want to make us all nostalgic for the lives we have not lived... all of them - in all forms - and all at once in a manner that knocks the wind from our chests and leaves us crying drops of fizz from the soda jerk dream. This is my hot take on the cold war. I like ike.
