Artist Statement

This print comes from my series Constructed Environments, a group of playful ruminations on interactions with our surroundings. The series grew out of sketching ideas for large-scale landscapes that involved sometimes epic performative aspects. Large-scale constructions and male angst dominate the series. This particular piece stood out from the others in that it depicted a more intimate space and is far more confrontational. It is also very playful and absurd. I still laugh when I look at it. Especially funny is the source material for the foreground figures. They come from a 1918 book on practical self-defense. The illustrations in the book all feature gentlemen in suits demonstrating self-defense tactics. I particularly enjoy the contrast in this image of male rage and etiquette.
