“Some of my works from 1996 to 1999, artistically examine the relation between abstraction and representation as process to picturemaking. Sources of imagery are taken from movie videos, which I photograph off the television, advertisements and emblems varying from food packages to skate board motifs. I think of these sources of depictions as “ready-mades”.
These “ready-mades” are reproduced as a vinyl decal and adhered to various surfaces, such as acrylic plexiglas or wood panels. Oftentimes a piece is made up of more than one panel and placed side by side. While earlier work involved a conventional figure ground relationship in paint, another correlation was developed in a different mode, to interact with the background and image both topically and visually by sticking the image to the surface as a decal.
