SELECTED WORKS FROM "ON LOVE & CONSUMPTION"

On Love & Consumption is a body of mixed media works that plays on a kitsch aesthetic and a maximalist approach that critiques higher social classes and gender through satire and dark humor.  Using the historical archetype of Marie Antoinette, reimagined with a modern twist, I examine the current state of late stage capitalism and its parallels to the French Revolution in terms of wealth inequality and economic oppression, coupled with the seemingly insatiable appetites of the upper crust.
