Action Figures

Some basic building blocks of these works are GI Joe type action figures which, when accepted as a cliché of a “societal ideal”, gives me a starting point to manipulate, reinterpret and embellish. I love bringing an erotic or exotic nature to the pieces by exploring the many ways to add context.   Taking the simple doll “idea” and breathing new life into it elevates a common toy to fine art status…endowing it with layers of meaning.
