Artist's statement published on clayakar.com: I like to call my work, "Vessels for the Kool-Aid Ceremony." The Meta stories in our visual culture are now primarily from commercials, advertising, and product tie-ins from movies and television, Lately, I have focused my attention heavily on advertising from the 1930's to 1960's. The advertising from this era was strongly flavored with patriarchy, racism, and gender shaming. I re-use these messages in a very self-conscious way, offering new context that tickles the soft white underbelly of "traditional" American values.
Estimate $500-800

One corner with two small chips.
