Walliecamp: Modular Epic Landscape - Paintings

Featured In New York, NY

Item details

Walliecamp is an ongoing project initiated in the summer of 2013. Wallecamp started as a hybrid painting / backdrop that covered the three walls of my studio at SVA's Art Practice department. My impulse had been to create a diorama for myself, to stage myself inside an image of a stereotypical desert landscape of the American West. Through the use of this imagery, I wanted to investigate constructions of the American Dream as it relates to labor, wealth, technology and quests for spiritual satisfaction. In other words, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
