“Roy Lichtenstein meets Cindy Sherman on steroids, peyote and gun powder.”
With shades of verisimilitude, simulacra, hyper reality, magic realism and the hero motif, (though not fitting completely into any one of these genres) I draw on numerous sources to create artworks with my newspaper the Tribal Earthling as the axis of each image. My Tribal Earthling allows me a vehicle to explore science, technology, politics, metaphysics, religion, art and futurology among other topics. I include myself as an infrequent, recurring subject/character in order to further my efforts of blurring the line between reality and fiction. This project is akin to a novel in visual art form such that each image might be considered a page or chapter in the book or perhaps even articles to be pasted into a scrapbook.
Technique: Single image capture utilizing my Digital Construct concept to insert the news stories.
