Things: Baby, I'm Your Man for George Michael
Baby, I’m Your Man for George Michael consists of 10 16” x 20” works on canvas created with acrylic, gouache, and photo collage. In a nutshell, this project combines my current life; that of recently losing my mother, experiencing the magnificent landscape of Wyoming (while attending an artist’s residency at the Jentel Foundation) and bridging my art of photo works documenting 99 cents store objects and junk food within vividly psychedelic stylistic painting. While painting these, I’ve obsessively listened to George Michael and want to add that I wasn’t that into him/his music at the height of his pop stardom (although I’ve always loved the song I Want Your Sex). George Michael has been my spirit guide through this challenging time in my life and has helped me to create these works! I pay tribute to him as I give each work’s title a snippet of lyrics taken from his songs.
