"Construction" is a collection of prints and found objects that exemplify the violent modernity of mass media today. Born and raised in New York City, I was absorbed into by the visual language of consumerism designed to attract us instantaneously. Overstimulation, name/brand recognition, and repetition vitalize this materialistic society. The screenprints and lithographs I created borrow ideas and motifs from real signs and advertisements I observe on a daily basis. I challenge the viewer to question the assumption of truth in print media by combining text and imagery in contradictory, abstract, or absurd ways. After printing, the posters are wheat pasted onto two 4' x 8' panels, which I originally painted blue and spray painted stencil reading "POST NO BILLS". These panels sat outside for 2 months in the rain and sun. Periodically I returned to tear off the old posters and paste new posters I had just printed. Sometimes the ink was even still wet. This act of destroying and constructing is necessary for the understanding of this piece and of the role of print in the modern world.
