I'll Take My Medication (acrylic, oil pen, and epoxy on cardboard lid assemblage)
We've all been there. This represents the crazy fights we endure for love and the desperate promises made to keep it together.
Narcissism (acrylic, oil pen, and epoxy on cardboard lid assemblage)
For this show I decided to play with the idea of love. Who wants to see a bunch of hearts and flowers anyway? Love is a loaded term and exploiting the light and dark side of it was way too tempting. So the one above is about self-absorption, a distorted kind of love. Narcissism.
I Just Wanna Talk (acrylic, oil pen, and epoxy on a cardboard lid assemblage)
These are pink elephants in overalls holding machine guns. Aren't they fun? They're psycho stalkers. Another distorted type of love.
Public Disclosure of Forbidden Love (acrylic, pencil, and epoxy on wooden assemblage)
Cult Status: No One Understands My Love for You
(acrylic, pencil, and epoxy on wooden structure with 3 rubber doll heads)

You Had Me at "Nanu": Mork and Buck Rogers (acrylic, pencil, epoxy and old doll on wooden assemblage)
Close up of "the woman inside Buck Rogers"
Marching Band and Drumline
I Love Robert: A Self Portrait (acrylic, pencil, epoxy, and celluloid doll on wood structure)
This is about me actually. Its a long story but when I was little I used to wish I was a little boy. So much that I would tell strangers my name was Robert. They believed me until they met my parents who refused to go along with my secret identity. So this piece is about loving the unconventional little Robert inside of me.

Le Karousel (16"X14" wood assemblage, acrylic, pencil, epoxy topcoat) The text in Le Karousel reads: " I was ever so clearly convinced that in the tide of the moment, I had chosen a joyous but rather strange day to take a trip on the merry-go-round. Though not for the faint of heart, I highly recommend it". (I'm sure you can figure this one out.)
A Munchkin in the Hot Seat (15"X13" acrylic, pencil, on wood)
Like most children, me and my twin sister grew up with a Wizard of Oz obsession. At the age of 3, we would go around singing, "we're off to see the lizard, the wonderful lizard of Oz!" We actually thought that the movie was called the Lizard of Oz. So this piece is sort of based on that misconception and the text reads: "You haven't been representing the lollipop guild very well and the Lizard of Oz is Pissed!"
