In my series of sculpture made of resin, metal, and vinyl, I draw on pop sources and the news media to comment on American culture. One of the themes that unifies this work is a nostalgia for a mythic golden age in American society that was created on television and in the movies. In this media landscape, cowboys and astronauts occupy the same cultural space. Some of these pieces start with an iconic image I find on the internet. The humor in some of the work comes from acknowledging the simplicity of that innocent viewpoint.
