Some recent work

This piece is a conceptual opposition to artist Lari Pittman. It portrays capitalist propaganda and ideas of American homogeneity -- two things Pittman is strongly against. On the other hand, I appropriated his style of decoration and embellishment.

Tactile Painting.

A digital collage illustrating my background and home town, Salt Lake City.

Ryan Bubnis

makes beautiful organic illustrations. Good feed for my deep obsession with pattern.

"Ryan Bubnis’ clean yet chaotic style has been described as “urban folk.” Through his paintings, he comments on themes relating to the human condition. Vibrant, abstracted shapes and faces radiate joy and optimism while they float in and out of rich, multi-layered realms."

Does it again. Now officially miss the mountains. Go Look.

The college ramen diet?

I think not.
I think if I could, I would marry my toaster oven. And oatmeal.

On another note. I've been gathering a lot of useful info from Nick Campbell and his website GreyscaleGorilla. If you spend an ungodly amount of time in photoshop (me), it's a fun time.

You can take this:

and this..

to make somethings like this:

iphone polaroids.

Out of the city and into the farm -- for a day.

Michelle and I got a chance to get out of the loop and see some autumn scenery today. Best ten dollars ever spent. Apple orchard, pumpkin patch, corn maze... autumn is the greatest. Bottom line.

The other day I was clumsy enough to elbow and Ikea mug full of hot coffee onto the floor. After the mess was assessed and dealt with, I was left with three large pieces of mug that I normally would have tossed into the trash. Those were the old days. In the new days I am reduced to a material-starved art student, and thus, the pieces sat on my window sill for days until I realized what I would do with them. 

All I knew was that I was in need of a bedside lamp. So to same myself a trip to Bed, Bath and Beyond (aka hell), I decide to take a page out of Jeff Carter's book and use Ikea products in sculpture. 

Here is some of his work:

This table is hooked up to a motor that makes it undulate like waves in the ocean. Brilliant.
