Watercolor, Gouache and Graphite on Paper
58 x 148 in.

This work is a long term large scale work begun in January 2010 and completed in June 2015. The piece is on a single sheet of paper 58 x 148 in. and depicts 1124 Television sets arranged in towers. Each black and white television has a different screen shot rendered in watercolor and gouache. Images are drawn from a variety of sources: Hollywood films, Art films, Network TV, documentaries, commercials as well as photographic and art historical references. The range is meant to suggest a broad, though certainly idiosyncratic view of contemporary culture seen from a variety of platforms (emotional, cultural, historical).
