“Statement”

Tradition and Irreverence: Exploring the American Diaspora examines the expanse of American Culture through the juxtaposition of symbols and written language, the dismantling of traditional iconography and through the appropriation of motifs and painting techniques. With imagery derived from gas station and saloon restrooms, ghost towns, alleyways, and graffiti walls, each piece presents a contemporary amalgam of our visual heritage in search of continuity between tradition and our prevailing cultural irreverences.
