This collage was created from photographs I took in Langley, BC. It was done for the Advanced Digital Media course. If you look closely at the bottom left hand corner you can see a charcoal drawing of my face. It's 20"x42"
I did this in the 2008 fall semester. Gauguin's painting was utopian, wishing to go back to paradise. My painting is a contemporary comment on consumerism giving a false sense of well-being while the reality is we are trashing the earth. The family is a shallow image, much like catalogue persons who have no depth. Their god is the idol of low prices.

I started this blog with the idea to share videos but I have a new love - oil painting! So I will be also posting my paintings from class. Please feel free to comment and give feedback, tips or challenges but be nice about it.
