Actual Size Series
Actual Size makes evident issues of scale that arise in the viewer's experience with reproductions of art online. Actual Size features miniature paintings as small as 1 x 2 inches, plus one monumental scale work.
The flat-screen, acrylic on masonite paintings take as their subject the situation of a camel and horse in the desert, iconic subjects in a mythic place. Using densely layered imagery in a flattened perspective, the paintings reference everything from classic Spaghetti westerns, biblical stories, roadrunner cartoons, old master paintings, sex, paranoia, and the political climate of the new millennia.
