Artist Statement
I have been doing a good deal of thinking about take out coffee. Its consumption is central to so many cultures' communal rituals. I'm interested in what the ubiquitous, logo emblazoned, disposable cups signify about this cherished contemporary American ritual. The work on canvas, panel, paper, mylar, and shaped PVC approaches the subject from many points of view. The cups appear in chaotic swirling eddies, mounded in landscapes, seen through overlay like animation cells, and most recently on shaped PVC as isolated objects on their own surface.
