Culture Clash spacer

The "Coloring Book Hybrids" series is a continuation of "Life Before TV", but focuses on issues facing us in the present and near future. The simple childhood pleasures depicted in the earlier series have been replaced by obsession with media, mall culture and junk food. These paintings and drawings are not only different in that they reflect current concerns but also employ physical distortions and hybridization of coloring book imagery. In this new body of work children and animals inhabit an anxious and unsettled world where food can be unhealthy, the natural environment endangered, and the streets unsafe. Added to these disturbing problems are the pressures of the consumer culture which contribute to eating disorders and insatiable desires for more of everything.
